Birmingham Monarchs v Ipswich Eagles : Elite Preview

After the expliots of last weekend Birmingham are back into league action this weekend as they welcome Ipswich Eagles to Perry Park.

The Monarchs will be led by Chris Timms fresh from his 3rd place in the British Senior Final. Nathan Groves is back from holiday and will be in the side as well as Mark Winwood who despite a finger injury looked strong last weekend and only just missed out on a final place.

David Ball and the Kemp brothers will be ones to look out for as they never give up in Monarchs shirts and Olly Riley could also feature in the West Midlands side.

Ipswich return to the second city where they lost last season in the last meeting of the season in the pouring rain. The Eagles will bring a strong young side once more with riders who had vital track experience last Saturday. Leon Mower, Lewis Roberts and Jamie Chittock will all be ones to watch as the Suffolk side look to do the double over Birmingham
