John Oliver close to Leicester Lions return

Speedway

Leicester Lions expect to have John Oliver back in action for Sunday's home meeting against Workington.

The Australian has been sidelined for a month with a wrist injury.

But Lions manager Jason Attwood said: "The healing process has been fine, he's had his main cast off for a couple of weeks.

"He showed no ill effects when I watched him having a practice. His left wrist is still supported but that has no effect on what he can do."
