Coventry visit Raceway this weekend

The Vortex Lakeside Hammers face their toughest test of the Elite League season as the highly fancied Coventry Bees visit the Purfleet Raceway on Saturday.

The Hammers will be looking to keep their early play-off hopes on track after missing the opportunity to win at Wolverhampton on Monday.

They returned with a point from a 48-42 defeat and co-promoter Jon Cook feels the team has still not reached its full potential.

He said: “May’s fixtures pit us against all the title favourites with Coventry first up. We are currently averaging two points a match, play-off form, but I feel we still haven’t seen the best of our team.

“Saturday is a very stiff test and with the return on Monday we will have a greater view of our abilities over the Bank Holiday weekend.”

Steve Worrall will again deputise for Adam Ellis, while Lewis Bridger will be taking to the track if he suffers no ill effects from the British semi-final at Rye House, having decided to ride through his current problems.
