Lakeside Hammers welcome back Zach Wajtknecht for the club’s National League home opener.

The 18-year-old heat leader missed Monday’s 48-42 defeat to Cradley Heath due to SGB Premiership commitments.

The Hammers secured a consolation point in the league opener at Cradley and are now looking to build on that in front of home fans.

However, they face a tough test against an in-form Colts side who have won both of their fixtures so far.

Team manager, Kelvin Tatum, said: “We hope we can make our home advantage count on Friday – but it won’t be easy.

“Belle Vue have got off to a flyer this season and with the likes of Dan Bewley, Jack Smith, Lee Payne, Kyle Bickley and co they’ve got one of the strongest teams in the league.

“This could well be one of the meetings of the season at the Raceway and the fans should be in for a thrilling night of Speedway.”

There will be six junior races taking place before the meeting at 7.30pm.

Races start at 8pm.

Hammers: Ben Morley, George Hunter, David Mason, Alfie Bowtell, Zach Wajtknecht, Jamie Couzins, Nick Laurence.

Belle Vue: Dan Bewley, Andy Mellish, Ben Hopwood (guest), Jack Smith, Lee Payne, Kyle Bickley, Luke Woodhull.

Admission prices to include both meetings: Adults - £13, Concessions - £11 (students/senior citizens over 60/registered disabled); Child (aged 6 to 12 inclusive) - £1; Children 6 and under admitted free.
