ADAMS - FEET ON GROUND

Wednesday June 02, 2021
WOLVERHAMPTON boss Peter Adams is keen to avoid complacency in his side ahead of Thursday’s trip to Sheffield.

Parrys International Wolves have won their opening two Premiership meetings in style at King’s Lynn and at home to Ipswich on Monday.

Now they head to Owlerton for their first visit in competitive action since 1996 after the Tigers’ promotion to the Premiership.

“I’ll need to set the satnav it’s so long since I went to Owlerton,” said Adams.

“But I’m very much looking forward to it and we go there in good shape after our great results so far.

“If the boys keep on riding the way they have been then they’ll take some stopping.

“It’s a long season though and things can change very quickly in Speedway.

“We’re thrilled with the start we’ve made to the season though and it’s been encouraging to say the least.

“We saw King’s Lynn’s first home match when they lost to Ipswich so we went there expecting to push them close at least.

“I was surprised, not that we won, but by the margin of victory and I think that sentiment was the same on Monday.”

Broc Nicol makes his return to Owlerton after enjoying a spell there in 2019 with the Tigers – and Sheffield are led by skipper Kyle Howarth, a popular rider during his time in Wolves colours.

Fans travelling to South Yorkshire without a ticket are urged to get there early for entry on the turnstiles for home straight access.

SHEFFIELD: Troy Batchelor, Justin Sedgmen, Adam Ellis, Kyle Howarth, Jack Holder, James Wright, Josh Bates.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Sam Masters, Luke Becker, Nick Morris, Ryan Douglas, Rory Schlein, Broc Nicol, Tom Bacon.
