Triple British under-21 champion Robert Lambert makes a triumphant return to the Adrian Flux Arena tonight
Triple British Under 21 Champion Robert Lambert makes a triumphant return to the Adrian Flux Arena on Monday night (7.30pm).
King’s Lynn face Swindon in a vital Premiership Supporters’ Cup tie, one they simply cannot afford to lose or even draw.
Poultec Stars skipper Lambert romped to gold for a third successive season – his last at Under 21 level – at Berwick on Saturday night to complete a triumphant day for Norfolk sport.
Now he aims to lead Lynn to maximum points against an in-form Swindon side.
“It’s a big night and obviously the target is to get the win,” he said. “We need the King’s Lynn fans to come along and get behind us.”
Boss Peter Schroeck is also keen to emphasise the need to deny Swindon anything from the meeting.
“We cannot allow them a consolation point because that will be costly for us,” he said. “We have to beat them by more than six points and retain our chances of topping the group.
“I’d like to congratulate Robert on his success at Berwick, to win three on the trot is a pretty special achievement and I’m sure he will get a warm welcome from the Lynn fans on parade.”
Fans are reminded they can vote for the riders they want to see in the penultimate race of the night by using a poll after Heat 10 on the @KLSpeedway twitter feed.
Swindon include 2017 World Champion Jason Doyle – the top rider in the league – and former King’s Lynn man Troy Batchelor.
Polish racer Tobiasz Musielak has also found form in the early stages of the season and is sure to be a threat.
King's Lynn Stars: Robert Lambert, Erik Riss, Thomas Jorgensen, Lewis Kerr, Ty Proctor, Michael Palm Toft, Kasper Andersen.
Swindon Robins: Jason Doyle, Dawid Lampart, Troy Batchelor, Adam Ellis, Tobiasz Musielak, Zach Wajtknecht, James Shanes.
