Elite League hopefuls meet Coventry in double-header

Lakeside Hammers can take a giant step towards the Elite League play-offs as they face back-to-back meetings against Coventry.

The Vortex Hammers travel to Brandon tomorrow night (Friday, 7.30pm) looking to add to their points tally and bolster their top-four ambitions.

They will then host the Bees at the Arena-Essex Raceway on Saturday (7.45pm) as they search for another important home win.

Heat-leader Richard Lawson says they are keen to make the most of “two vital meetings” and he believes they have what it takes to get their huge weekend off to a strong start on the road.

“They are two vital meetings for us,” said Lawson. “We’re desperate to get some points at Coventry and hopefully get the win at Lakeside on Saturday.

“We’re all determined to make it to the play-offs and it all comes down to these last few meetings now.

“It’s going to be tight, so every point will count. If we could get something from the away meeting that would put us in a good position, and we have to make sure we don’t have any more slip-ups at home as well.”

Coventry will be without star man Krzysztof Kasrpzak due to the third round of the Speedway Euro Championship in Russia.

With no guest facility permitted to cover his absence, sub-6.00 Premier League rider Michael Palm Toft steps in at number one.

Lakeside include former Coventry riders Andreas Jonsson, Edward Kennett and Lewis Bridger in their full strength side.

Club coach Kelvin Tatum added: “It would be a great achievement for us to make the play-offs and that’s our target.

“We want a big crowd at the Raceway on Saturday, it should be a great night and hopefully we will see lots of families there.

“Coventry are a tough side to beat, but we’ll be going for it and we know we must win our home meetings.”

Coventry: Michael Palm Toft, Jason Garrity, Danny King, Kacper Woryna, Chris Harris, Josh Bates, James Sarjeant.

Hammers: Andreas Jonsson, Edward Kennett, Richard Lawson, Lewis Bridger, Kim Nilsson, Robert Mear, Lewis Kerr.
