King’s Lynn will look to get back to winning ways on home shale when they host Wolverhampton on Thursday (Aug 25, 7.30).

The Roger Warnes Transport Stars have slipped to back to back defeats at the Adrian Flux Arena and last tasted victory against Leicester back on July 14.

With reigning World Champion Tai Woffinden bringing his Wolves side to Norfolk, they will aim to recapture their best form with a much-needed victory.

They will first face a trip to the National Speedway Stadium to take on table-topping Belle Vue tonight (Wednesday 24, 7.30).

And skipper Rory Schlein says they are desperate to put their recent frustrations behind them to find some form over the closing stages of the season.

Said Schlein: “It’s been a frustrating year, and with injuries and fixture clashes the club just hasn’t had a clean run of consecutive meetings with a full strength side.

“We’ve been missing key members of the side in big meetings which has made things difficult, and we have been up against it at times.

“It’s been tough, but we all want to end the season on a high. We’ve got matches in hand so we’ll look to win as many as possible and see where it takes us.”

King’s Lynn will draft in Swindon reserve Stefan Nielsen to guest for the injured Simon Lambert, whilst they will otherwise be at full strength.

Wolverhampton will operate rider replacement for Jacob Thorssell, who is riding in the Swedish League, whilst Stuart Robson steps in for Kyle Howarth due to a meeting for Premier League side Sheffield.

Meanwhile, the meeting will be followed by a Midland Development League clash between the King’s Lynn Lightning and Mildenhall Tiger Cubs.

LYNN: Niels-Kristian Iversen, Kai Huckenbeck, Robert Lambert, Rory Schlein, Troy Batchelor, Stefan Nielsen, Lewis Rose.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Fredrik Lindgren, Peter Karlsson, Tai Woffinden, Jacob Thorssell R/R, Sam Masters, Stuart Robson, Max Clegg.
