STARS v WOLVERHAMPTON, PREVIEW

Tuesday June 13, 2017
KING’S LYNN boss Dale Allitt wants his side to gain a healthy advantage in the home leg of their Knockout Cup tie against Wolverhampton at the Adrian Flux Arena on Wednesday (7.30).

Since the Trucks ‘R’ Us Stars met the Wolves in the league, when they suffered a heavy 59-30 defeat at the start of May, the Norfolk men have won all four of their fixtures.

And despite Wednesday’s opponents being in good form themselves, having lost just one of their last nine meetings, Allitt is confident his side can pick up a win against the 2016 Elite League Champions.

“We know Wolves are good but so are we,” said Allitt. “It should be a really good meeting and if our boys ride to their capabilities then we can look to take the kind of advantage down there at the end of the month that will see us progress.

“Every match is important to us, the competition doesn’t matter, it is all about continuity and keeping the momentum going.

“Recent results have given everyone confidence and you can feel that around the place and certainly in the pits.

“It helps you to build that bit of a fortress at home and a siege mentality which is what we’re after.”

The Stars will be without reserve duo Kai Huckenbeck (Grand Prix qualifier) and Simon Lambert (broken wrist) for the meeting. Their places will be taken by former King’s Lynn man Carl Wilkinson and former Young Star Jake Knight.

KING'S LYNN: Chris Holder, Lewis Rose, Nicklas Porsing, Troy Batchelor, Robert Lambert, Carl Wilkinson, Jake Knight.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Freddie Lindgren, Kyle Howarth, Rory Schlein, Jacob Thorssell, Sam Masters, Mark Riss, Nathan Greaves.
