Mildenhall travel to the Isle of Wight tonight looking to repeat rivals Dudley ‘Heathens’ performance on the Island last Tuesday.

Mildenhall travel to the Isle of Wight tonight looking to repeat rivals Dudley ‘Heathens’ performance on the Island last Tuesday.

The Fen Tigers line-up is the same as for the recent home Victory against Kings Lynn with young Connor Mountain being giving another opportunity at reserve after impressing on debut.

With Aaron Baseby now at reserve and scoring paid 14 against Kings Lynn, the Fen Tigers promotion are hoping he will prove a trump card on the Island with his experience and knowledge of the Smallbrook circuit.

Club chairman Kevin Jolly is looking for a big performance from his charges - “We are looking for the win on Tuesday and in my mind we have the tools to do the job. Aaron at reserve is a bonus for us but the big issue here is definitely getting the lads to have a fast start to the meeting. We have been a little slow in recent meetings and need to stamp our authority on proceedings much earlier. Robert (Henry) and I will be making this clear before the meeting and we are looking for a big response from the lads.

The Isle of Wight are clearly weaker without Adam Ellis at reserve now and as I say we must be on the gas from heat one! We are nearly back to full strength now which helps the team spirit no end and are giving Connor Mountain another chance at reserve as he impressed us all last time out”
