Match Preview - Warriors v Kings (NL) plus Wizards v Kestrels (SDL)


This week’s action sees the Warriors entertain the Kent Kings at the Andrew Younie Smallbrook Stadium.

This National League fixture gives the Warriors a chance to avenge the twenty four point defeat handed out by the Kent team when they last visited at the end of May – a night that saw the visitors’ nineteen points in front after only five races following a whole series of falls, mechanical issues, disqualifications and injuries to the home side.

Revenge may be a tall order as it will be a battered and bruised home side that come to tapes. Indeed there is still some uncertainty of the final line up as the roll call of wounded looks this way. Ben Morley, after two big crashes last week, hopes to be able to ride. Scott Campos suffered a reaction to the carnage of heat 10 at Mildenhall last Sunday and is nursing a knee problem with a late call on his availability to be made. Chris Widman will definitely miss the meeting following the broken wrist sustained at Wolverhampton on Monday evening. Shaun Tedham’s back spasms appear to be easing and he too is hoping to ride.

The Kings bring the same septet who were victorious on the Island last time with bags of fire power from the impressive Kevin Bowen, Jack Thomas and Nathan Stoneman, supported by improving teenagers Anders Rowe and Taylor Hampshire.
