Lakeside Hammers are gearing up for an important Travel Plus National League showdown with fellow play-off contenders Birmingham at The Arena Essex Raceway on Friday.

The Vortex Hammers currently sit one point behind their opponents in the league table and know another home win would be enough to move them back into the play-off positions.

Paul Hurry is anticipating one of the meetings of the season so far against the Brummies and believes the Hammers have got what it takes to build momentum and go on another run.

“Birmingham are a strong team and when you’ve won the league for the last two years, you get a winning mentality drilled into you,” he said.

“It’s certainly not going to be easy and they will do everything that they can to push us, but I feel like we’re growing as a team all the time and that’s important.

“I think the bunch of riders we’ve got here this year work really well together and we’ve got the potential to make this a memorable season.”

Lakeside: Paul Hurry, Nick Laurence, Ben Morley, Alfie Bowtell, Zach Wajtknecht, Jamie Cozuins, Connor Locke

Birmingham: Jack Parkinson-Blackburn, Layne Cupitt, David Mason, Tom Bacon, Liam Carr, Lewis Whitmore, Taylor Hampshire
