THE ‘Cases’ Somerset Rebels will be hoping to turn their fortunes around tomorrow (May 5) as Wolverhampton Wolves visit the Oaktree Arena, where the Rebels have suffered two successive home losses.

After defeats to Swindon and King’s Lynn, the Rebels won away to Belle Vue on Monday, but Wolverhampton will prove a stiff test as defending league champions.

They are led by Grand Prix star Fredrik Lindgren, the Swede backed up by his compatriot Jacob Thorssell, Rory Schlein and ex-Rebel Kyle Howarth.

Somerset will go into Friday night’s match with a full septet of riders, with team manager Garry May looking for his side to take confidence from Monday’s win and claim victory at home.

May said: “Having already lost those two home matches against Swindon and King’s Lynn, we really need to get back to winning ways if we are to keep our ambitions of an end of season play-off place on-track.

“To be fair, we only needed to have picked up a couple of extra race points in both those matches and we would be looking at an unbeaten home record, rather than two successive home defeats, but such are the fine margins between winning and losing.

“Wolves won’t make its easy, but the Somerset boys are eager to get back to winning ways on home shale, so it promises to be another exciting encounter, but one in which the Rebels will come out on top!”
