Wolverhampton team manager Peter Adams is confident that his side's search for their first 2006 win will end against Swindon at Monmore Green tonight.
Wolves have so far recorded four consecutive defeats, one in the League, after an admittedly tough start to the campaign.
The common factor across those defeats has been poor starts, with Wolves giving themselves far too much to do in the later stages and Adams accepts that this is something which must be rectified.
But he took some satisfaction from the comeback at Swindon last Thursday when his team fought back to only go down by ten points, when a much heavier defeat had looked likely.
With three points up for grabs tonight, including the aggregate bonus, getting off to a good start will be vital.
Adams said: "You'll see a different story. I thought the team showed great character in closing the gap at the end on Thursday."
If Wolves are to take that long-awaited win, they will need to be fully aware of the threat of one of their former riders who has a major reason to impress.
Ronnie Correy was left out of Wolves' plans over the winter and managed to land a short-term contract with Swindon on the eve of the season as a replacement for Russian rider Renat Gafurov, who had been unable to obtain a visa to enter the country.
That problem has now been overcome and Gafurov is now set to make his debut for the Blunsdon club tomorrow - making it Correy's Robins swansong and his last chance to impress other prospective employers.
Swindon skipper Leigh Adams has sent out a positive pre-match message, as the Australian believes his team have a better chance than usual of pulling off a good result on a track where they have rarely shone.
Adams said: "Some of our lads won't have experienced the track at Monmore Green but having Ronnie in our team is something in our favour as he has great experience of their track."
After tough trips to Poole, Peterborough and Swindon, Wolves will be grateful that their next away assignment is at struggling Oxford, who have made a disastrous start to the campaign.
The Monmore men travel to Cowley on Wednesday for the first leg of a first-round Knockout Cup tie and should be able to target a morale-boosting away win against a Cheetahs side who have suffered four heavy defeats.
Also on Wednesday, Coventry travel to Poole in the Elite League looking to bounce back from the shock of a home defeat against Reading on Friday.
Co-boss Peter Oakes said: "Having won at Reading, we were disappointed to lose at home, but we have to take the positive, which is three points out of five.
"We know it's going to be hard if one or two riders aren't at their peak, but we are together as a team."
