King's Lynn Stars boss looking for some consistency
Alex Brady, who wants his King’s Lynn Stars side to add consistency when they travel to Ipswich on Thursday, also praised young Lynn-born reserve rider Connor Mountain.
The Brady bunch are fresh from notching a first Premiership home win of 2021 over Belle Vue, and the new team manager said of the upcoming Witches derby trip: “We have a lot of boys who go well at Ipswich, and obviously we’ve already won there once this season as well.
“We’ll be looking to replicate that; we’ll be doing our very best at least.
“It’s about finding some consistency now as well. Like you said, it’s no use winning one and losing three.
“We’ll be doing everything we can to keep the “W’s” going.”
Whether Thursday’s win over Belle Vue was a turning point, he replied: “I certainly hope so.
“In terms of the team spirit and attitude and the application from the boys I certainly feel like it is. Hopefully, potentially, who knows where this may take us in the league?
“This might be a catalyst for us, but overall, I’m over the moon. No, we’re really not (a terrible side), and that’s the point I was trying to get over to the boys a lot of the time.
“Belle Vue are a very good side, I’m sure they’ll do well and get through to the play-offs, and Mark Lemon is a good team manager.
“We’ve proved we can mix it with - and beat - the best and hopefully we can continue that into next Thursday at Ipswich and further on still.”
On Mountain, whose penultimate race 5-1 with Lewis Kerr proved vital versus the Aces, Brady added: “I was standing with Connor at the pit gates after Heat 13 - he was going out in 14 - and I said I need something special off number one from you, Connor.
“He just gave me a little grin - and did he produce something special? He certainly did.”
