Belle Vue must do without Nieminen next week
Kauko Nieminen has been ruled out of Belle Vue's hectic Elite League programme next week with a knee injury.
The Aces host King's Lynn at Kirkmanshulme Lane on Monday and then visit Poole and Swindon later in the week, with the Finn having aggravated the problem just before the World Cup break.
Belle Vue boss Jason Attwood said: "I took a call from Kauko on Wednesday evening and he informed me his damaged left knee was still too badly swollen to have a planned scan carried out, and this has now been put back until early next week.
"His rides will be covered by both reserves and Kevin Wolbert, who will be able to take one ride as he is the rider presently above Kauko in the current averages."
