UPBEAT team boss Neil Middleditch has backed Richie Worrall to impress in Pirates colours.

Belle Vue asset Worrall last week arrived at Poole on a minimum 28-day deal, replacing the sidelined Brady Kurtz.

And Worrall, a former motocross rider, is due to make his third appearance for the Dorset club at Wolverhampton tonight (7.30pm).

Middleditch told the Daily Echo: "Richie is in some good form. He's made no secret of how excited he is to get the opportunity to ride for the Pirates.

"Hopefully, he can do a job for us. He is a very capable young rider.

"It's a tough call. Brady's are big boots to fill but I know Richie will give it his best shot."
