The King’s Lynn Stars face their first meeting for nearly three weeks when they entertain Coventry Bees tomorrow at the Adrian Flux Arena.

The Roger Warnes Transport Stars last raced on Thursday, June 2 in a 48-42 Elite League success over Wolverhampton.

Coventry feature new British champion Danny King and former World No.2 Krzysztof Kasprzak in their side.

Lynn are bidding to complete a home double over Coventry as they edged a close encounter in May 46-44. Their Danish duo were top scorers, with Niels-Kristian Iversen contributing 10, and Mads Korneliussen 8.

This was the occasion of a heat 14 horror crash involving skipper Rory Schlein.

Schlein was taken to hospital after a nasty pile-up involving all four riders.

The Australian will miss most of the season, whilst Coventry youngster Kacper Woryna suffered wrist damage in the accident.

Rob Lyon’s troops were due to get back into the saddle by heading to the Midlands on Friday – but their Elite League match at Coventry was postponed due to a waterlogged track.

This is the second time this fixture has bitten the dust following the unsettled spring weather. A new date for the fixture is to be confirmed.

The Stars were about to hand Danish racer Nikolaj Busk Jacobsen his debut at Brandon. Busk Jakobsen stepped in for Kai Huckenbeck at reserve.

Team manager Lyon also remarked: “Simon Lambert has been scoring well for Peterborough recently so we’ve decided to give him a run instead of Carl Wilkinson at reserve.”
