EVENING Star Ipswich Witches promoter John Louis has said he was disappointed to see his side go out of the cup at Wolves on Monday night.

However, Louis feels his team lost the tie in the first leg at Foxhall.

“We were 14 points up at home and should have built on that, but we let our concentration slip and Wolves came back into it. This left us with too much to do.

“Speedway is such a confidence game and you have to keep at it to get results. Some of our team are not getting the points they should but they have to keep going and concentrate 100 per cent at riding themselves back among the points.

“The rest of the side now has seven days to sort themselves out before our home league campaign starts. As that is all we have left to go for it is imperative we get off to a good start against Swindon.
