Tommy Bell says Leicester Tigers are determined to maintain their momentum when attention switches to the LV= Cup.Tigers face holders Exeter Chiefs in the last four of the competition at Welford Road this Sunday (kick-off 1pm). Tickets are available now on 0116 319 8888 (option 2), from the Welford Road ticket office or by clicking here.   Tigers go into the game on the back of a six-match winning run in all competitions, and Bell says Tigers want to keep that momentum going.   Bell, whose performance against Cardiff Blues in Tigers’ final pool fixture of the competition earned him a nomination for the LV= Breakthrough Player of the Year Award, said: “The LV= Cup, at the start, helped our Premiership campaign get back on track.   “The squad that came into the LV= put in some performances and it put pressure on everyone.   “Now we are going well in the Premiership and we go back into the LV= Cup – it’s just about keeping that momentum going.   “Exeter are a great team with a great squad and they did really well last year to win it – it’s going to be tough.   “It’s obviously a little bit better that we are playing at home – that’s going to be a bit of an advantage.”   Supporters can vote for Bell as the LV= Breakthrough Player of the Year by clicking here. Bell says: “It’s a nice compliment – I found out on Twitter after the game.  It is really nice to be nominated for that but the job is not done.”
