The South East and East region will hope to make it three wins out of three in their first Supertrax Battle of Britain home fixture of the series against North and Scotland on Sunday.

The South East and East side turned out impressive performances in the opening two rounds, firstly holding off a strong Midlands fight back in Leicester and then overcoming the South West and Wales challenge in Oxford.

They will go into the match as favourites after the North and Scotland were rocked by the retirement of Polish ace Damian Zareba. The former European champion had to sit out of round two against the Midlands with a back injury sustained in round one against South West and Wales. Sadly for the 34 year old, doctors orders have brought an impressive cycle speedway career to an end.

The Northern team still have top team riders to call upon, but they will need to work hard together to overcome the impressive depth of the South East and East in Ipswich.

The Midlands welcome South West and Wales to East Park, needing a win to keep the pressure on the league leaders. On the other hand the South West and Wales need a positive display to kickstart their campaign.

Fancied by many as favourites for the title at the start of the series, the South West and Wales have struggled with rider availability and injuries.

The Midlands will be buoyed by a strong performance against the North and Scotland last time out. A win is essential if they are going to mount a serious challenge against the South East and East.

In the elite junior class, the South East and East will be determined to secure their first win of the season against the North and Scotland. They let slip a significant lead against the Midlands in round one and were beaten by South West and Wales juniors in round two.

The North and Scotland lost out in a close match against the Midlands in round two but an away win will keep them in contention for the title.

The Midlands are the only team with a 100% recording the junior competition, they will go in as favourites against the South West and Wales. The South West and Wales riders are all towards the younger end of the junior age group but have been performing above the expectations of their age under the guidance of manager Zac Payne.

Both matches begin at 1pm and take place at Whitton Sports Centre, Ipswich and East Park, Wolverhampton.
