SCOTT Nicholls will try and put his World Cup Race-Offs disappointment behind him tonight when the Ipswich Witches host Eastbourne Eagles at Foxhall.
Nicholls - who was recently overlooked by British boss Rob Lyon - will ride, however, Dawid Stachyra has a Polish commitment and is out for the home side.
Ipswich tried, but failed, to get Daniel Davidsson (eight-day ruling) and Mark Lemon (riding at Sheffield), so Simon Lambert steps in.
Carl Wilkinson continues in the No.7 role, but must be on thin ice after a run of low scores.

Eastbourne lost at Belle Vue on Monday by just eight points, despite being without Lewis Bridger, who was stuck in Poland having left his passport in a restaurant.
He has come in for stinging criticism from Eagles' fans and there are rumblings he is set to face a two-meeting ban, which would see him absent tonight.
