King’s Lynn Stars heat leader Kenneth Bjerre has been ruled out of tonight’s (Thursday) fixture against the Poole Pirates at the Adrian Flux Arena.
After visiting the doctor on Wednesday morning, Bjerre (pictured) was told the bad news.
Team boss Rob Lyon explained: “Kenneth has been to his doctor this morning and the news is not good.
“He has burns to his hand as well as bruising and swelling.
“He had hope to return to the side, but he needs to let that hand heal.”
Former Stars rider and current Edinburgh Monarch, Sam Masters, was a guest replacement for injured skipper Rory Schlein, with rider replacement in operation for Bjerre at number 5.
Stars: 1 NK Iversen, 2 R Lambert, 3 S Masters (G), 4 N Porsing, 5 r/r, 6 A Morris, 7 L Kerr.
