King's Lynn Stars sweating on the fitness of key riders for Premiership clash
The King's Lynn Stars are sweating on the fitness of Aussie Ace Ty Proctor ahead of Monday’s home clash with Poole (7.30pm).
The 32-year-old crashed while on Championship duty with Sheffield on Saturday and withdrew with a wrist injury.
But Poultec Stars boss Peter Schroeck is looking forward to getting his side back on home shale at the Adrian Flux Arena following three successive defeats on the road.
And he’s under no illusions how difficult their Premiership Supporters’ Cup clash will be against the reigning top flight Champions.
“I was amazed, like everyone else, to see them come from 16 down to draw at Belle Vue a fortnight ago,” Schroeck said.
“We’ve had a tough run of away meetings since we were last at home three weeks ago and that’s never easy for the riders.
“We want to win every meeting regardless of the competition though and hopefully we can get a home win under our belt against Poole, who are once again a very good side.”
There’s sure to be a great reception for British Champion Robert Lambert; the Poultec Stars skipper reached the semi-finals of Saturday’s FIM Speedway Grand Prix Of Poland.
Supporters will also have the opportunity to select the rider, from four nominations, who they would like to see represent the Poultec Stars in Heat 14. To get involved follow @KLSpeedway on Twitter.
