Andersen seeking Danish party

SPEEDWAY: Former Ipswich Witches rider Hans Andersen has no fears about tackling favourites Poland in tonight’s World Cup final in Vojens, Denmark.

The Denmark skipper, who will also be out to finish above Great Britain and Sweden, said: “Poland might be favourites, but it’s an open field, four good teams and anything can happen.”

Andersen says a huge Danish crowd has a vital role to play in helping his side regain the Ove Fundin Trophy.

“It will be just like riding in a home GP,” he added.

Following their Race-Off win on Thursday, Denmark will wear the white helmet covers. The Swedes race in red; 2009 winners Poland defend their title in blue, and Team Great Britain, who include Witches star Scott Nicholls, wear yellow for their first final in three years.
