King’s Lynn ace Troy Batchelor says they are desperate to turn their form around – starting when they head to Belle Vue tonight (Wednesday 24, 7.30).

The Roger Warnes Transport Stars have suffered four successive defeats to all but end their Elite League play-off hopes.

But Aussie racer Batchelor insists they are determined to end their frustrating season on a high as they head into two meetings in two days.

They will travel to the National Speedway Stadium to take on the table-topping Aces before hosting play-off chasing Wolverhampton at the Adrian Flux Arena on Thursday (7.30).

And Batchelor is optimistic they can end their losing run as they look to climb up the Elite League table.

“We’ve had some pretty good results but a lot of bad ones recently,” said Batchelor. “We just haven’t seemed to be able to get a full team for whatever reason, and it’s been tough for us.

“Hopefully we can get the team together over the rest of the season and we can try and end on a high.

“We’ve got a lot of meetings to go over the next couple of weeks, and we want to win as many of them as possible.”

The Stars will head to Belle Vue without No.1 Niels-Kristian Iversen due to a Danish League meeting, with Freddie Lindgren stepping in as a guest.

They will otherwise be at full strength, with Carl Wilkinson returning to the side in place of the injured Simon Lambert at reserve.

Meanwhile, Belle Vue have drafted in British Champion Danny King as a guest for Max Fricke, who is also riding in Denmark.

BELLE VUE: Matej Zagar, Steve Worrall, Danny King, Scott Nicholls, Craig Cook, Richie Worrall, Joe Jacobs.

LYNN: Freddie Lindgren, Kai Huckenbeck, Robert Lambert, Rory Schlein, Troy Batchelor, Lewis Rose, Carl Wilkinson.
