SCUNTHORPE head to Leicester this evening looking to overturn an 18-point deficit in the second leg of their play-off quarter-final at Beaumont Park (7.30).
Youngster Dan Thompson makes his return as part of a full-strength Lions side, with the 17-year-old having missed recent away matches due to illness.
The Scorpions travel with a much-changed line-up with absentees for a host of reasons.
James Shanes, Jye Etheridge and Lions asset Connor Mountain all step in as guests for Tero Aarno (visa issue), Thomas Jorgensen (injured) and Theo Pijper (suspended) respectively, and the visitors also operate rider-replacement for British Champion Adam Ellis who is out with illness.
LEICESTER: Nick Morris, Dan Thompson, Ryan Douglas, Kyle Howarth, Hans Andersen, Joe Thompson, Zaine Kennedy.
SCUNTHORPE: Adam Ellis R/R, Simon Lambert, Jordan Palin, James Shanes, Jye Etheridge, Josh MacDonald, Connor Mountain.
