Wolverhampton go head-to-head with fellow play-off chasers Belle Vue twice on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Parrys International Wolves travelled to the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester (noon) before returning to Monmore Green later on this evening (8pm).

Just two points separate the two sides in the current standings. And the Monmore men know that it could prove to be a crucial day for their top-four hopes.

Promoter Chris Van Straaten said: “We know we could do with a win on our travels and we have to go to Belle Vue in a positive mindset and hope we can get something out of that fixture.

“We then travel back to Monmore Green later on the night where it goes without saying that we have to win and make sure the Aces don’t collect any points at all.

“As ever for a Bank Holiday meeting we’ve got plenty of additional attractions such as a bouncy castle for the kids, plus there’ll be the Young Lions at the track with some under-15 races as well as some JAP demo races too.

“We’ve also got a hockey shootout so there’s plenty going on before the main meeting and hopefully we get a good turnout with a mixture of regular supporters as well as new families who are experiencing live speedway for the first time.”

Admission is £18 adults, £13 concessions (students/senior citizens over 60/registered disabled), £7 juniors (age 13-18 inc.) while under-13s go free.

Belle Vue will be without British teenage sensation Dan Bewley following an horrific crash at Workington on Saturday, while James Sarjeant again guests in place of Nathan Greaves at reserve for Wolves with skipper Rory Schlein returning at No.1.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Rory Schlein, Kyle Howarth, Jonas B Andersen, Sam Masters, Jacob Thorssell, Ashley Morris, James Sarjeant.

BELLE VUE: Craig Cook, Steve Worrall, TBC, Rohan Tungate, Max Fricke, Dimitri Berge, Mark Riss.
