IPSWICH Evening Star Witches will be hoping to make it a fifth straight Elite League win at Wolverhampton tonight.
The Foxhall side are on a purple run of form which saw three straight home wins followed by Saturday night's victory at Arlington, Eastbourne.
It has put the Witches on the edge of the play-offs, having been bottom just three weeks ago.
It has been a marvellous transformation by the Suffolk side who will be hoping to show the speedway armchair public exactly why they are on such a roll.

Tonight's meeting is being shown live on Sky Sports as the Witches draft in Eastbourne's Edward Kennett as a guest for injured skipper Chris Louis.
Kennett scored 10 points from five rides on his last visit to the midlands track when riding for his side Eastbourne and at Lakeside two weeks ago he scored 6+3 bonus points for the Witches, when last guesting for Louis.

There is little doubt the Witches will fancy their chances against a home side who have already lost two home meetings this season. Much will depend on how Ipswich's Polish trio Robert Miskowiak, Piotr Swiderski and Jarek Hampel quickly get to grips with the tight Wolverhampton circuit.
But Wolves team manager Peter Adams is in no doubt about Ipswich's ability.
“Ipswich are a good, solid-looking team throughout and if they are firing on all cylinders, then they will push us very close,” he said.
The Witches welcome back Tobi Kroner after he missed the Eastbourne clash because of a European commitment, although he didn't ride in that meeting anyhow because of a virus.
Wolverhampton: F Lindgren, A Dryml, N K Iversen, N Klindt, D Howe, C Henfenbrock, K Hansen
Ipswich: E Kennett, R Miskowiak, T Kroner, S Johnston, J Hampel, P Swiderski, C Schramm
Tonight's meeting is on Sky Sports 1, 7.30pm
