PREVIEW: LEICESTER v NEWCASTLE (Champ)

LEICESTER look to maintain their strong start to the season when they host Newcastle at the Paul Chapman & Sons Arena tonight (Saturday).

The Lions have gone through the 60-point barrier in both home matches so far, including in their league opener against Scunthorpe, and they have also progressed to the quarter-finals of the KO Cup.

Both sides are unchanged with the Diamonds racing their first league fixture of the season after two warm-up challenges.

Lions boss Stewart Dickson said: “We’re looking for a win obviously, but I’m certainly not one of the people who have written Newcastle off. I’ve just got to look after Leicester’s affairs.

“I know this is their first official fixture in the Championship, but we’re looking for the three points – whether we get a big win or not, you never know how speedway is going to pan out.

“Racking up another win is the important thing, however many race points we score, and we’ll be looking to put in another big performance to set us up for a busy Easter weekend.”

LEICESTER: Nick Morris, Connor Mountain, Kyle Howarth, Dan Thompson, Richie Worrall, Anders Rowe, Joe Thompson.
NEWCASTLE: Bradley Wilson-Dean, Matthew Wethers, James Wright, Max Clegg, Paul Starke, Lee Complin, George Congreve.
