Ipswich Witches’ director of speedway Chris Louis, did not shy away from his side’s poor performance at Rye House on Saturday night.

The Suffolk side were well beaten by the Rockets, who were in a determined mood in both teams’ opening Premier League clash of the season.

Only Nico Covatti (15 points) showed the sort of form expected from a Witches rider, leaving Louis with plenty on his mind.

“It wasn’t very good,” Louis said.

“I’m very disappointed with the start to the season, two poor performances and one OK one.

“There are key issues with key riders and I intend to address them and quickly.

“I’m not naming names and I won’t be doing anything immediately, but neither will this be allowed to carry on.

“Only Nico Covatti did his job at Rye House and he has had less meetings so far this season than practically any of the team. There is no panic, but I will be looking for a big improvement starting at Foxhall on Thursday.”
