Jack Thomas is glad to be back in the King's Lynn Stars speedway squad.

The Rising Star reserve has been out of riding action since a derby fall against Ipswich Witches at home on June 9.

In Heat 4 that evening the Norwich-born racer clipped Witches rider Ben Barker – who appeared for Lynn last season – on the exit of turn two.

The aim is for the 23-year-old to return at home, ironically enough versus Ipswich, on Thursday in the Premiership.

He said: "The injuries are getting a lot better. I've had more physio and laser treatment done and the X-rays have come through and they're pretty much healed up.

"I'm just trying to get strength back in my wrists, and more movement back because I lost a lot of movement but the sooner I get back on my bike, the better."

Richie Worrall, who is now in the main body of the team, has begun working on his machinery himself, and joked: "my mechanic is gone – he was as much use as a chocolate teapot – and I've had a bit of a rejig.

"I've spent a lot of time on the bikes and gone over everything myself and found a couple of things. I'm on a much faster and better bike and I'm much happier."
