Belle Vue Boys On Triple Time

Three bouts of action involving a Belle Vue side are pencilled in for Bank Holiday Monday with the Rentruck Aces on the early shift at Poole before heading north to Midland rivals Wolverhampton.

Then, following the Premiership fixture at Monmore Green, the Cool Running Colts complete the triple shift against Cradley, who are still vying for a coveted spot in the National League top four.

With league leaders Swindon looking most likely to finish top of the table, the Mancunians are keeping their goals realistic and are looking to cement their Play Off place once and for all.

Club No.4 Rohan Tungate said: “Obviously we’re targeting two wins. It’s going to be a long day and it’d be extremely satisfying to be able to come away from both meetings with all four points.

“I think with our form at Poole this season we’ve got a good chance pf repeating previous performances. But they have strengthened up since last time so we need to be mindful of that.

“And it’s the same for Wolverhampton. They came to us not long ago and we put them to the sword, and even without Max Fricke you can’t help but feel this is an opportunity we must take.”

Meanwhile, the Cool Running Colts are keen to maintain their impressive form in the build up to the National League Play Offs after running amok at the Isle of Wight and Birmingham last week.

Though second-placed Eastbourne have five matches in hand, the current league leaders are confident of remaining within the Play Off boundaries as they prepare to close off their campaign.

And with only the skipper Lee Payne out due to injury, the returning Rob Shuttleworth believes there’s ample reason to expect another powerful performance from his side on Monday night.

He said: “In an ideal world, we would have Lee back with us and we could tackle these last few meetings as a full team. But we can’t change the situation so we have to male the best of it.

“We’ve already proved we can carry a rider replacement between us, therefore I have no reason to believe we can’t maintain the away form everyone has come to expect of us; we know we can.

“Cradley will I’m sure have a bit of a chip on their shoulder because we’ve beaten them once before so I think this will be a very exciting and competitive meeting from start to finish.”

It’s all action for the Rentruck Aces this week as they return to Manchester on Wednesday August 30 to face off against Rye House. Tickets available now online at
