All eyes will be on Adam Skornicki in tonight's Midland Open Championship at Monmore Green.
The Pole has been without a team place in the Elite League since losing his Wolverhampton spot at the end of last season - a season in which he spent substantial time in a reserve berth.
But his name has been widely touted in connection with being a temporary replacement for the injured David Howe, and a good performance in tonight's Individual meeting, which fills a gap in the fixture list, would put him in pole position for a recall.
With a busy fortnight of fixtures commencing next Monday when Wolves face Peterborough, promoter Chris Van Straaten and manager Peter Adams are known to be uncertain about facing several key matches using the rider replacement facility.
It is now more of a problem as the averages have changed with Howe dropping to No 4 in the order, restricting the choice of replacements during a meeting and ruling out Mikael Max and Freddie Lindgren.
Skornicki's abilities are well-known, especially if his equipment is right, and he could certainly add significant points to Wolves' middle-order if he gets the call.
Pre-season, many supporters may have expected the Monmore club to be making a team change at reserve by this stage of the season, as the announcement of littleknown Pole Krzysztof Pecyna met with a muted response.
But despite some early difficulties with the smaller tracks, Pecyna maintained his starting average and is now beginning to show very useful form in partnership with Magnus Karlsson at reserve.
He still speaks little English so communication on team issues is not always easy, but scores of 12 (paid
13) at Oxford and 14 in the return fixture last week indicated that Pecyna is far more than a stop-gap signing.
Van Straaten said: "We seem to be building a record of bringing people in who few have heard of, and turning them into a success.
" Communication has improved as we have a mechanic working with him who used to work with Adam, and Krzysztof is getting his head around British racing. Nobody is saying 'Krzysztof who?' any more."
Tonight's meeting features the full Wolves squad (minus the injured Howe), including No 8 James Grieves, as well as club assets Chris Neath and Daniel Nermark. Highly-rated Swede Eric Andersson is also in the line-up as is former Coventry stalwart Stuart Robson, who clocked up some good scores at Monmore Green in the last couple of seasons.
