The Belle Vue Colts prepare to face their final home league fixture of the season this Monday, September 2, when they finally welcome the Mildenhall Fen Tigers to Manchester.
The original attempt at this National League clash back in June was washed out thanks to the weather, but this time around things look much more settled for this crucial meeting.
The Cool Running Colts made the trip to West Row on Sunday and are hoping to bring echoes of their emphatic home win over Cradley into this meeting which could help secure their top four spot.
And with the home side at full strength once again, skipper Kyle Bickley believes they can repeat their previously powerful performance, saying: “The re-shuffling of the team has made us stronger.
“Everyone is where they should be. Some of the lads found it more challenging to be in the top five than they do at reserve, and we saw their real potential last week against Cradley. They were great!
“It’s good for their confidence and it’s good for us because we know that everyone will be in races best suited to their experience, and when you’re facing a team like Mildenhall you need confidence.
“They have some big hitters and they will be a tough team, so we need everyone to be on point to get a big result. We’re so close to the play offs and this could be a defining moment of our year.”
Silverware is on the line for the Rentruck Aces when they face the Swindon Robins at home in the first leg of the hotly anticipated 2019 Premiership Supporters' Cup Final on September 12.
Tickets for both home meetings are available at the stadium box office on race night, or online at www.bellevue-speedway.com.
