TODAY'S traditional Good Friday double-header sees Ipswich and Lakeside go head-to-head in 30 heats of speedway action.
Starting at Foxhall this afternoon, the Witches travel into Essex tonight for the return, with Witches boss John Louis refuting suggestions his team are out for revenge after the Hammers left the Witches licking their wounds in a pre-season warm-up that left two Witches hospitalised.
“I have heard one or two fans suggest that we will be out for revenge but I am quite sure that the lads accepted the crashes as an unfortunate part of racing and are just focusing on winning meetings,” said Louis.
