Purfleet club head to Coventry for crucial Elite League clash

Lakeside Hammers will head to Coventry looking to boost their Elite League play-off bid in their penultimate away meeting of the season tomorrow (Friday, 7.30pm).

The Vortex Hammers know time is running out to pick up some more points on the road as they travel to Brandon for a vital crearranged lash.

They will be without star skipper Andreas Jonsson due to the Gorzow Grand Prix of Poland, while Richard Lawson is riding for Premier League club Glasgow.

But reserve Robert Mear is keen to step up to the plate and help them add to their Elite League points tally and says the disappointment of narrowly missing out on a point at Wolverhampton on Monday (in a 51-41 loss) will spur them on as they take on the Bees.

He said: “We were gutted to come so close to a point at Wolverhampton, and it was probably a worse feeling than getting annihilated away from home.

“The play-offs is a big thing for any rider, it’s where we want to be so we have to pick up as many points as possible in our last few meetings.

“It’s going to be tough going to Coventry without AJ and Richard, but hopefully we can all do our bit and come away with something.”

Former Coventry favourite Scott Nicholls will guest for Jonsson at number one, while rider replacement will cover for Lawson.

The home side will be without Chris Harris due to the Grand Prix, but wildcard Krzysztof Kasprzak will skip practice in order to ride for the Bees.

Coventry: Krzysztof Kasprzak, Jason Garrity, Danny King, Kacper Woryna, Chris Harris R/R, Josh Bates, James Sarjeant.

Hammers: Scott Nicholls, Edward Kennett, Kim Nilsson, Lewis Bridger, Richard Lawson R/R, Robert Mear, Lewis Kerr.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
