Wolverhampton race their final Elite League fixture of the season tonight - more than seven weeks after their previous outing.
The trip to Oxford has already been re-scheduled on a couple of occasions having not been staged before the cut-off date for play-off qualification due to electrical problems at the Cowley venue, and further dates have been lost to fixture congestion.
Wolves legend Sam Ermolenko makes what could well be his final Elite League appearance as he guests for the injured Mikael Max. Ermolenko, who has been on loan at Peterborough, has yet to officially confirm that he will retire but is set to run a special meeting at Monmore Green early next season.
Wolves manager Peter Adams insists that, for the credibility of the sport, there has to be a complete Elite League table, hence the lateseason visit to Cowley.
Adams said: "Some people have questioned why this meeting has to be undertaken at all now that the destiny of the title has been settled.
"Surely though, in a professional sport, it is incumbent on the clubs to conclude things properly, irrespective of what bearing those last few fixtures have.
"In football's Premiership, Chelsea had the title in the bag with four matches left to play, but we didn't see the FA calling a halt to the rest of the programme. Speedway should be behaving in exactly the same responsible fashion."
Coventry have confirmed that former skipper Andreas Jonsson will be flying in to take his place in the Elite League Select team for Friday's season-ending Challenge at Brandon.
It is a unique meeting which is being organised by the Bees riders themselves, who have been given the stadium for the night by club owner Avtar Sandhu, who will hand over all proceeds from the event after the staging costs to the team as a reward for their Elite League title success.
The meeting will also see the return to Brandon of another ex-Coventry captain, Danish star Brian Andersen. He spent eight seasons with the club in the 90s before injury forced him to quit the sport over three years ago. He will take to the Brandon shale one last time to race brother Jan.
Bees skipper Scott Nicholls said: "As riders we are very grateful for the reward Mr Sandhu has given us, and it also gives us the chance to put on something a bit special for the fans so that we can all celebrate such a successful season. Mr Sandhu gains a lot of respect from a lot of the things he does and the way he is. It's not just his generosity, but it's the way he does things."
