TEAM NEWS - LIONS v IPSWICH

LINE-UPS have been declared for a massive meeting at the Pidcock Motorcycles Arena, Beaumont Park on Thursday as the Watling JCB Lions take on Ipswich.

The teams are currently first and second in the ROWE Motor Oil Premiership after Belle Vue missed out on the opportunity to take over at the top when they lost at Birmingham on Monday.

Ipswich have been the most successful visitors to Beaumont Park since the Lions returned to the top league, and Stewart Dickson's side are determined to collect a win over the Witches.

Dickson has elected to revert to what has been his most regular riding order this season as Richard Lawson returns to No.2 and Luke Becker rejoins Sam Masters in the middle order.

The visitors are without captain Danny King who suffered a broken hand in a crash at Redcar on Friday, and they have elected to operate the rider replacement facility.

King has been placed at No.2 and all of their team members with the exception of Emil Sayfutdinov are eligible for one of his rides, including Dan Thompson who moves up into the Witches' top five for the first time.

LEICESTER: Max Fricke, Richard Lawson, Sam Masters, Luke Becker, Ryan Douglas, Drew Kemp, Joe Thompson.
IPSWICH: Emil Sayfutdinov, Danny King R/R, Jason Doyle, Dan Thompson, Adam Ellis, Keynan Rew, Jordan Jenkins.

*LION Cubs racers Max James, Vinnie Foord and Sonny Springer are all in action on Tuesday at Plymouth (7pm) in the British Under-21 Qualifier, with ten places available for the Final at Glasgow later in the season.
