Tonight, 7.30pm, the King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars travel to Leicester aiming to register their first Elite League away win of the season.

So far this year the Stars have struggled away from home and are yet to pick up any points away from the Adrian Flux Arena.

That could change however as they visit Beaumont Park on Bank Holiday Monday. Last season, Lynn walked away with two away wins and they will be aiming to do the same this season, starting on Monday.

Following Monday’s fixture, both teams will return to the Adrian Flux Arena on Wednesday night in what promises to be a closely fought meeting.

Stars team boss Rob Lyon has made a slight change to his side for both meetings. Reserve Ashley Morris moves to the number six position with Lewis Kerr taking on the number seven role.

Lynn’s main body remains the same with Niels-Kristian Iversen, Kenneth Bjerre and captain Rory Schlein taking heat leader spaces ahead of Nicklas Porsing and Robert Lambert, who continues to impress for the Stars.

The visiting Lions have been forced into changes for the meeting on Wednesday, Mikkel Michelsen and Grzegorz Walasek are both unavailable.

Leicester manager Norrie Allen has booked Kyle Howarth and Max Fricke as guests, two riders who have already taken to the Adrian Flux Arena track this season for their respective clubs.

King’s Lynn Stars (Monday & Wednesday team): 1 Niels-Kristian Iversen, 2 Robert Lambert, 3 Rory Schlein, 4 Nicklas Porsing, 5 Kenneth Bjerre, 6 Ashley Morris, 7 Lewis Kerr.

Leicester Lions (Wednesday team): 1 Jason Doyle, 2 Kyle Howarth, 3 Max Fricke, 4 Szymon Wozniak, 5 Bjarne Pedersen, 6 Josh Auty, 7 Simon Lambert.
