STARS v RYE HOUSE, PREVIEW

Sunday June 17, 2018
KING’S LYNN team manager Dale Allitt says it’s important his side return to winning ways when they host Rye House at The Adrian Flux Arena on Monday (7.30).

After a run of three straight defeats, the Tru Plant Stars find themselves bottom of the Premiership standings – but they do have meetings in hand on those above them.

And while he expects a competitive fixture against an experienced solid Rockets side, Allitt is hopeful his side can add three more points to their tally as they look set to return to full strength.

He said: “It goes without saying that we go into Monday’s meeting on the back of our most difficult spell of the season but as I have always said, it’s how you respond to those sorts of things that matters most.

“We were very disappointed to lose to Somerset in our last home fixture and the result at Poole last Wednesday was also very frustrating as we know we’re so much better than that.

“But we had riders missing on both of those occasions so hopefully we can regroup as a 1-7 and get our season back on track.”

Supporters are urged to note that despite a change of raceday for this one, Monday’s meeting is NOT live on TV.

And supporters who want to enjoy the best of both worlds can get along to the Adrian Flux Arena where England’s opening World Cup game will be broadcast in the bar area.

Monday’s raceday programme is also a special souvenir, limited edition brochure dedicated to Stars skipper Robert Lambert who won silver with Great Britain in the Speedway of Nations, was crowned British Champion and secured his place in the World Under-21 Championship series all in the space of seven days.

It features a range of views, interviews and pictures and will be available from the track for just £3.

Fans will also be able to grab a photograph with Lambert and his British Championship trophy between 7 and 7.15 upon entry to the stadium.

KING’S LYNN: Niels-Kristian Iversen, Lewis Kerr, Ty Proctor, Thomas Jorgensen, Robert Lambert, Kasper Andersen, Michael Palm Toft.

RYE HOUSE: Krzysztof Kasprzak, Aaron Summers, Chris Harris, Stuart Robson, Scott Nicholls, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Max Clegg.
