LEICESTER heat-leaders Richie Worrall, Kyle Howarth and Nick Morris all scored maximums in their 62-28 romp at Newcastle on Sunday.
It was the Lions’ club record away win and the second time in successive home fixtures that the Diamonds have conceded 62 points.
The visitors also dominated at reserve with Dan Thompson scoring 10+1 and guest Jason Edwards 10+5 – unbeaten by a Newcastle rider until he appeared in Heat 15. James Wright scored 11 for the hosts.
The result takes Leicester 15 points clear at the top of the table, having now won their last nine league matches.
Manager Stewart Dickson said: “We had a serious team talk beforehand and gave Newcastle the utmost respect, because we lost here last season, which hurt us, and that shows you it can happen in speedway.
“We were ruthless, and we got the job done. We were making great gates and it was another great performance to keep our fans happy.
“I do have sympathy with Newcastle, but our job is to make sure Leicester are doing their job, and we did it today in a very professional manner.”
NEWCASTLE 28: James Wright 11, Kasper Andersen 6, Max Clegg 5+2, Ricky Wells 4+1, Lee Complin 2, Jack Smith 0, Paul Starke r/r.
LEICESTER 62: Richie Worrall 15, Kyle Howarth 14+1, Nick Morris 12, Jason Edwards 10+5, Dan Thompson 10+1, Joe Thompson 1, Connor Mountain r/r.
