    PREVIEW: LEICESTER v NEWCASTLE (Champ)

    LEICESTER bid to turn the tables on Newcastle when the sides meet at the Paul Chapman & Sons Arena in the Championship tonight (Saturday).

    The Lions slipped to defeat at Brough Park last weekend but now defend their impressive unbeaten home record against the Diamonds – having not lost on their own circuit to opposition from their own league since August 2018.

    Leicester bring in Tom Brennan to guest for the injured Josh Bates whilst rider-replacement is in operation for Ty Proctor who has left the club. The Diamonds use Thomas Jorgensen at No.1 and r/r at No.2 with Ben Barker and Adam Roynon ruled out.

    Lions boss Stewart Dickson said: “We need to make sure there are no slip-ups against Newcastle, we’ve been okay at home so far and we need that to continue.”

    LEICESTER: Nick Morris, Ty Proctor r/r, Kyle Howarth, Tom Brennan, Ryan Douglas, Dan Thompson, Joe Thompson.
    NEWCASTLE: Thomas Jorgensen, Adam Roynon r/r, Connor Mountain, Max Clegg, Matthew Wethers, James Wright, Jack Parkinson-Blackburn.
