Tomorrow (Friday) night gives the King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars a perfect opportunity to put Wednesday night’s frustration behind them as they travel to Coventry aiming for Elite League points.

The Bees are top of the Elite League table and look set to be in the end of season play-offs, with the Stars hoping to join them. An away win for Rob Lyon’s side would push them close to securing a spot in the top four.

Lynn, who saw their A47 derby with Leicester halted after nine races on Wednesday, go into the meeting at full strength and boss Lyon (pictured with Kenneth Bjerre) has kept his side’s formation unchanged.

Hosts Coventry have been forced into one change with Aaron Summers coming into their team to replace the injured Stuart Robson at number two. Grand Prix star Chris Harris leads the Bees charge on Friday with Hans Andersen and Danny King providing more than adequate backup.

Stars team boss Lyon said ahead of the meeting: “Away from home our form has been patchy, we know that, but we have got a team that can go anywhere and get a result.

“We have been so inconsistent really and it is a concern heading towards play-off time. We will approach the meeting in the same way that we have every match.

“Our form is good at home and we are unbeaten, but we need to pull some more points in on the road.”

Bees: 1 Chris Harris, 2 Aaron Summers (G), 3 Danny King, 4 Joonas Kylmakorpi, 5 Hans Andersen, 6 Jason Garrity, 7 James Sarjeant.

Stars: 1 Niels-Kristian Iversen, 2 Nicklas Porsing, 3 Kenneth Bjerre, 4 Robert Lambert, 5 Vaclav Milik, 6 Lewis Kerr, 7 Ashley Morris.
