wildecats kick off the season at Nottingham.
leiecester wildecats will face Nottingham lions on the opening day of the season. having succumbed to a 4-0 defeat last season, wildecats will hope to start much better this time out after a first half horror show saw the team 3-0 down after 15 minutes. it was a Christmas hangover to forget!
This time out wildecats will be without their all time top goalscorer as Neil Ward has ruled himself out of the running for the league. his goals could be a costly miss as new manager tom jones looks to fill the void with what looks on paper an outstanding team.
cats welcome some new faces to the season with Tom rogers and rudy making the starting 14.
after daves man of the match performance in a holding midfield role, the gaffer has a headache with how to line up whether he goes the traditional 442 of 451 that looked so secure against newdawn athletic in their pre season friendly.
the bookies are calling this a tight encounter with both teams relegated last season.

cats win 5/4
