IPSWICH ‘Sackers’ Witches travel to Leicester on Sunday hoping to keep their positive start to the Premier League season going.
The Suffolk side have already beaten the Lions at Foxhall last Monday to claim the maximum three points.
That, coupled with an excellent draw at Scunthorpe in their opening League clash, means the Suffolk side travel to the midlands confident of getting something from their visit.
None more so than Morten Risager, whose eye-catching performance at Foxhall on Monday was one of the main reasons Ipswich won so well.

He’s hoping for more of the same at Leicester.
“We have a good record at Leicester and won the Fours title there two years ago,” the Dane said.

“I’m the only rider left from that day, but we have riders who ride their track well. It’s a bit of a gaters track and we have good gaters in our team.”
Risager is a key rider in the Witches 1-7 and has as much experience as anyone in the team.
He’s made a good start to the season.
“I’m quite happy with my start,” he said.
“I know from experience I’m a rider who needs a lot of laps to get going and that’s happening now after such a hard winter where I hardly rode at all.
“I just need to get more wins under my belt, rather than just scoring half-a-dozen points or so.”
Ipswich will hope to pick up at least a point against a Lions side who have had a tough run of late.
The Lions will be without new British under-21 champion Robert Branford as he can’t get back from a Polish under-21 semi-final.
