BIRMINGHAM stage their first home National League fixture of the season on Wednesday when Plymouth visit Perry Barr (7.30).

The Surestop Brummies will be looking to add to their tally following an impressive 54-36 win at King’s Lynn last week.

However, Plymouth include former Brummies squad members Lee Smart and Robert Parker as well as experienced campaigner Steve Boxall and boss Graham Drury is expecting a tougher challenge against the Devils.

“I don’t think Plymouth are as weak as some people make out if I’m being honest,” Drury said.

“Steve Boxall has been there and done it, especially at this level, and he demonstrated his skill with a 15-point maximum in their opener last week.

“They’ve got other experienced riders who are dangerous on their day and they’ve got a couple of young up-and-coming talents as well so we’ll have to be on our guard.

“I’ve spoken to the lads and they’re still in high spirits after our win at King’s Lynn and they’re keen to get back on the Perry Barr track.

“We’re still in the Easter School holidays so hopefully we’ll see some new supporters, plenty of kids coming to the speedway for the first time and that would be good for our riders because they love racing in front of the bigger crowds.”

After Chris Hay quit the sport last week, the Brummies will operate rider replacement with Jack Parkinson-Blackburn, Layne Cupitt, Macauley Leek and No.8 for the night Kyle Roberts eligible to take his rides.

Admission is Adults and Seniors £13.00, Children (6-16) £2.00 while children 5 and under go FREE.

If supporters have requested and validated their ‘reduced admission ticket’ from the club website, then they will be admitted for £10 as advertised.

Supporters are kindly asked to bring the correct change if possible.

BIRMINGHAM: Tom Bacon, Chris Hay R/R, Darryl Ritchings, Jack Parkinson-Blackburn, Danyon Hume, Macauley Leek, Layne Cupitt, Kyle Roberts (No.8)
