Elite League speedway returns to the Adrian Flux Arena tomorrow (Wednesday) night, 7.30pm, when the King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars host Midlands side Wolverhampton minus two riders.
It has been two weeks since Rob Lyon’s side pulled of a thrilling win over Poole at Saddlebow Road, and the Stars will be targeting more league points against Wolves, who have lost their last five fixtures.
The Stars have been forced into two line-up changes with new recruit Vaclav Milik ruled out after he picked up a wrist injury while guest riding at parent club Poole last week. In-form Robert Lambert (pictured) has also been ruled out after his crash at Berwick last week.
Stars boss Rob Lyon is working hard behind the scenes to secure guest replacements in time for the meeting on Wednesday. Captain Niels-Kristian Iversen continues to lead the side from the front with Nicklas Porsing at two and Kenneth Bjerre at three. At reserve the Stars have Lewis Kerr and Ashley Morris, who will be facing his former side.
Since their last visit, Wolverhampton have changed their side around with Peter Karlsson moving to number 1 and Freddie Lindgren riding at 5. Ricky Wells moves up in the team to take the last heat leader role ahead of Tobiasz Musielak, who missed out on representing his club last time.
Ahead of the meeting Lyon said: “By their own admission, Wolverhampton have struggled this season after a bright start, but they are more than capable of an upset anywhere so we need to be on top of our game again to ensure victory comes our way.”
Gates will open at 6pm on Wednesday with the first race taking place at 7.30pm.
