Leicester Lions trio fit for Premier League play-offs

Leicester Lions have been boosted ahead of the Premier League play-offs with Magnus Karlsson, Lasse Bjerre and Jari Makinen all confirming their fitness.

The trio picked up knocks on last month's northern tour but are ready for three matches in three days, starting at Somerset on Friday and followed by a double-header against Newcastle.

Co-promoter Alan Jones said: "In our group all three teams have not lost at home so something has to give.

"Hopefully we'll do ourselves justice."

Jones added: "Titles are won on performances away from your own backyard. That is where successful teams are judged as to whether they have the mental character to pull it off."
