LAKESIDE moved to the top of the Championship table with a 52-37 home win over rivals Ipswich.

Another dominant performance at the Arena-Essex Raceway saw the Hammers go level in the standings with Peterborough, but into first position on points difference.

It was an impressive response from the Purfleet outfit who had fallen to defeat to the Witches in Suffolk 24-hours previous.

And boss Will Pottinger says his side again demonstrated how dangerous they are with a full side available.

“We’ve shown that on one or more occasion and that is something that’s going to be key as we head into the business end of the season,” Pottinger said.

“It was a solid team performance with a lot of the riders doing really well and even though Kyle (Newman) and Richard (Lawson) were frustrated by having a tough night, they still made the difference between Ipswich getting a league point and not getting one.

The Hammers return at the Arena-Essex Raceway on Friday, August 10 at 8pm against Peterborough.
