PREVIEW: BIRMINGHAM v LEICESTER (ROWE MOTOR OIL PREM)

BIRMINGHAM are looking for their first victory of the season in the ROWE Motor Oil Premiership when they host Leicester at Perry Barr tonight (Monday).

The Brummies’ only point in four matches came after a Super Heat defeat to Sheffield, but they have still proved competitive on their return to the top-flight.

Polish star Piotr Pawlicki makes his debut after early-season injury whilst Scott Nicholls stands in for the injured Wiktor Lampart.

Birmingham assistant manager Chris Adams said: “Every meeting is important, especially at home. But after a draw and losing last time against Oxford, I think we could definitely do with a win on Monday.

“We’ve been on the back foot a little bit without having Piotr, but having him in the side now can only be beneficial for us.

“It’s a shame Wiktor has got injured, it means we still haven’t got our full team together, but we’ve all seen what Scotty can do at Perry Barr and all the riders are desperate to get that first win.”

Meanwhile Lions boss Stewart Dickson has re-shuffled his riding order, with Ryan Douglas moving to No.2 to partner captain Max Fricke, whilst Sam Masters goes to No.5. Rising Star Joe Thompson is fit despite a heavy crash at Scunthorpe on Friday.

Dickson said: “I’d already changed the riding order before we rode against Sheffield. I want to try something different just to see if we can get a bit of a better balance.

“We saw Max and Dougy in Heat 13 on Thursday, so whilst I might be scratching for something that’s not there, I feel I’ve got to try it, and I already had that plan.

“We’re not going to curl into a ball, we’re going to come back fighting, and collectively we will keep working to turn things around. The team need to be fired up to win at Birmingham on Monday.”

BIRMINGHAM: Vaclav Milik, Tom Brennan, Steve Worrall, Scott Nicholls, Piotr Pawlicki, Zach Cook, Leon Flint.
LEICESTER: Max Fricke, Ryan Douglas, Luke Becker, Richard Lawson, Sam Masters, Drew Kemp, Joe Thompson.
SCB Referee: Dave Watters
