The King’s Lynn Roger Warnes Transport Stars will have another crack at taming the Leicester Lions on Thursday.

Lynn host the Elite League ‘B’ fixture having had their ‘A’ one abandoned after nine heats a fortnight ago.

The Adrian Flux Arena outfit, unbeaten at the Saddlebow venue, need another home win as other teams immediately below have completed wins to catch up.

Belle Vue and Swindon Robins are breathing down third-placed Lynn’s necks, with Swindon the favourites to be the Stars’ main threat to a top four play-off spot as the Robins have two meetings in hand.

The Stars’ abandoned fixture against Leicester will now take place on Monday, August 24.

The original fixture was halted after nine races due to heavy rainfall with the Stars leading by 13 points. Rob Lyon’s side will be looking to repeat their early performance.

A busy week sees the Stars host Swindon on Wednesday, August 26, and the Young Stars host Rye House on August 28.

Lynn number one Niels-Kristian Iversen slipped out of the World Championship top five after grabbing just seven points from his home GP.

Danish racer Peter Kildemand defied a hat-trick of crashes to land a dream Kjærgaard Danish FIM Speedway Grand Prix win in Horsens on Saturday.
