WOLVERHAMPTON skipper Rory Schlein has declared himself fit for tonight’s (Monday) clash with Sheffield as racing returns to Monmore Green.
Schlein crashed out of a guest appearance for King’s Lynn on Thursday but has rested over the weekend and will line up for a full-strength home side with recent signing Leon Flint making his home debut.
Said Schlein: “I feel OK, just generally banged up but I’m riding Monday! I’ve been told I may have a broken scaphoid and need to go back this week for another scan to establish that.
“I also have bruised ribs and a bruised spleen but that won’t stop me. I don’t feel too bad. My neck feels OK, my chest is still sore and the wrist feels fine, just swollen but I can grip which means I can ride. I’m going for it!”
Former Wolves man Kyle Howarth leads the Tigers, whilst Josh Bates makes his return from injury at reserve.
Howarth said: “I’m looking forward to going back to Wolverhampton, I loved my time with them.
“I’ve still got many friends there and we won the league there in 2016, that was pretty special.
“Monday night now is all about Sheffield and trying to get the win away from home, that would be a great achievement, but they’re a top side.”
WOLVES: Sam Masters, Luke Becker, Nick Morris, Ryan Douglas, Rory Schlein, Broc Nicol, Leon Flint.
SHEFFIELD: Troy Batchelor, Kyle Howarth, Adam Ellis, Justin Sedgmen, Jack Holder, James Wright, Josh Bates.
