Potters aim to finish off season at home on a high

Stoke Potters will be at full strength for tonight’s National League clash against the Isle of Wight.

Potters team manager Adam Isherwood is calling on his riders to secure a morale boosting victory for the team and its supporters. 

He said “We’ve lost our last two home meetings and we need to give our supporters a long-awaited win. We’ve seen some brilliant racing and nobody can deny that and the results haven’t really shown the effort put in by everyone, but we are not just getting over the line and that’s away also.

“I’ve actually had supporters from other clubs come over at the end of the meeting and congratulate the team on a great meeting at tracks and have admitted that we deserved something out of those meetings and while that’s great it doesn’t show on the league table. We have a full side on Saturday and hopefully we can get things back on track and a few wins under our belts before the season finishes.”

The Warriors are led by Stoke track specialist Ben Morley who scored double figures last week while guesting for the Belle Vue Colts and he has Cradley’s Jack Smith guesting for Georgie Hunter for some solid support. The Warriors also have former Stoke favourite Chris Widman in their line-up. Widman had a torrid start to the season with mechanical issues, but he has since dropped down to the reserve berth and has found his form and will be looking to chalk up a big score against his former employers.

Stoke are aiming for their first win in the league since the end of June.

Tapes go up at Loomer Road at 7pm.

STOKE: Tom Perry (Captain), Shelby Rutherford, Joe Lawlor, Luke Priest, Connor Coles, Kieran Douglas, Joe Alcock

ISLE OF WIGHT: Jack Smith, Chad Wirtzfeld, Scott Campos, Danno Verge, Ben Morley (Captain), Connor King, Chris Widman
