Crunch meeting for King's Lynn Stars
The King's Lynn Stars travel to Leicester tonight looking to keep in touch with their rivals in the Premiership standings (7.30pm).
It’s a vital clash for both sides at the Paul Chapman and Sons Arena, Beaumont Park.
And with skipper Robert Lambert winning the second round of the Speedway European Championships on Saturday, team boss Dale Allitt is hoping he can help inspire his team-mates as the Stars look to add to their tally.
“It was another remarkable result for Robert on Saturday and he’s in stunning form this season,” Allitt said.
“We’ve seen him at points already this season rub off on the other riders and they get on well as a group.
“We’ve got a really pivotal part of our season coming up now and we know we can’t fall too far behind if we want to achieve our goal and reach the top four.
“And while going to Leicester is never easy, there’s no reason why we can’t go there and get something if everyone performs on the night.”
Simon Lambert makes his first appearance back in Stars colours against his former club with rider replacement operating for the injured Lewis Kerr at No.2.
Leicester: Kenneth Bjerre, Ricky Wells, Charles Wright, Krystian Pieszczek, Hans Andersen, James Sarjeant, Todd Kurtz.
King's Lynn Stars: Niels-Kristian Iversen, Lewis Kerr R/R, Michael Palm Toft, Thomas Jorgensen, Robert Lambert, Simon Lambert, Ty Proctor.
