Matt Neal is steeling himself for an onslaught over the second half of the season from British Touring Car Championship rival Jason Plato.

Following a seven-week break for the series, the racing finally gets back on track again this weekend with a triple header at Snetterton.

At the halfway stage of the 10-event campaign, reigning champion Neal holds a slender one-point lead over Honda team-mate Gordon Shedden.

As for 2010 title-winner Plato, the 44-year-old is 29 points down in his MG6, but with Neal expecting him to come on strong. "Jason will come out all guns blazing, I'm sure of it," he said.
