IPSWICH travel to Belle Vue tonight in a bottom-of-the-table Sky Sports Elite League clash.

Without a league win in nine, the Witches will be looking for a bit more of a showing in Manchester after their hapless performance against Peterborough on Thursday.

Jesper B Jensen is likely to ride despite still feeling the effects of a rib injury, and with it being his sixth away fixture for the Witches, it will also give the Dane, who has already ridden six at home for the Suffolk side, a new average.

Belle Vue had their biggest win of the season at home to Eastbourne last Monday, and with GP rider Antonio Lindback at reserve, they are strong in that department.

If the Aces were to win by more than nine points they would collect the bonus point and leave Ipswich just a point off them at the bottom of the table. And if the Witches were to end bottom of the Sky Sports Elite League, it would be for the second time in four seasons, not a proud record.
