MATT Ford believes Kacper Woryna will benefit from a stint at reserve.

The young Pole dropped into the bottom two for Monday’s 46-44 defeat at Wolverhampton and top scored for the visitors with 13 paid 15.

Woryna had previously ridden in second-string positions with eight at Rye House earlier this month his best points haul prior to the trip to Monmore Green.

Pirates chief Ford told the Daily Echo: “I imagine Kacper will remain in that position, even if we make another change to the team.

“A little run at reserve will probably be good for him. He has been riding in, potentially, the hardest position at number two.

“This will benefit his confidence and if we have Mat Szczepaniak or someone else at reserve with him, we will have strength in depth.”

Both Woryna and Szczepaniak are due to compete in Polish Championship quarter-finals on Friday, with Woryna joined at Krosno by the newly-eligible Josh Grajczonek.

They will face the likes of Maksym Drabik, Janusz Kolodziej and Damian Drozdz.

Szczepaniak will race at Krakow alongside riders including Grzegorz Walasek, Adrian Miedzinski and Krystian Pieszczek.

The top eight from each of the four quarter-finals – the others being at Rawicz and Opole – will advance.
