Stars looking to build on Poole Pirates victory at Adrian Flux Arena
Thomas Jorgensen has urged supporters to pack the terraces when King’s Lynn take on rivals Ipswich at the Adrian Flux Arena tonight (7.30pm).
The Stars return to Norfolk following a confidence-boosting victory at league champions Poole on Thursday.
New Poultec Stars boss Peter Schroeck takes charge of his first home meeting in the Supporters’ Cup, standing in for Dale Alllitt who is unwell, with his side looking for revenge after they suffered defeat to the Witches at Foxhall recently.
The visitors meanwhile, head to Lynn with confidence flowing as they look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
Jorgensen said: “It’s nice have Ipswich in the same league as King’s Lynn and it is credit to Buster Chapman for making it happen because I didn’t know much about the rivalry before they came up into the Premiership, and when we had the first fixture you can see how much it means to the fans
“We definitely want do better than we did at Foxhall, the whole team were struggling with gating and we couldn’t really get out the start. And that is why we lost the meeting because Ipswich were better at gating but we are on home shale now - we just need the fans behind us!”
Supporters are reminded that they will be able to vote for the two riders they want to represent their team in heat 14.
The team managers will each nominate four riders for the Twitter poll which will be launched after heat 10 has been completed.
The poll will run for 15 minutes with the two riders with the most votes riding in heat 14 but those riders are unable to be selected for heat 15.
Lynn Stars: Robert Lambert, Erik Riss, Thomas Jorgensen, Lewis Kerr, Ty Proctor, Michael Palm Toft, Kasper Andersen.
Ipswich Witches: Chris Harris, David Bellego, Danny King, Krystian Pieszczek, Richard Lawson, Cameron Heeps, Jake Allen.
