POOLE v STARS, PREVIEW

Wednesday August 30, 2017
CLUB captain Robert Lambert insists there’s no lack of belief in the King’s Lynn camp as they head to Poole tonight (Wednesday, 7.30).


The Trucks ‘R’ Us Stars suffered a heavy defeat on Tuesday as they went down 65-26 at play-off chasing Rye House.

But Lambert, who scored half of the team’s total points at Hoddesdon, put it down to a bad night at the office for his side and is looking forward to heading to Wimborne Road – the track where he was crowned British Under-21 Champion earlier this season.

Said Lambert: “It was a really tough meeting for us on Tuesday as Rye House are a very strong team with a good home track advantage.

“I scored some good points but it was a shame for the other boys who just couldn’t find the set-up for them even though I tried passing on some information.

“The Rye boys were just trapping better than us though and that was the big difference as there was hardly any passing from them if they didn’t make the start either.

“But we just have to learn from it and move on to Poole.

“We’ll keep our heads high going into that one and then we’ve got the double header against them and Rye House at home on Thursday.”

Despite top-scoring for Rospiggarna with 13+1 in Sweden on Tuesday, the Stars are forced to be without reserve Nicklas Porsing once again. The Dane suffered concussion during last week’s double header with Wolverhampton and is not allowed to ride in the UK until September 2 due to the nine day concussion rule that exists in British Speedway.

The Stars have booked Scunthorpe man Tero Aarnio to deputise in his place.

POOLE: Brady Kurtz, Jack Holder, Paul Starke, Edward Kennett, Hans Andersen, Timo Lahti, James Shanes

KING’S LYNN: Robert Lambert, Thomas Jorgensen, Kai Huckenbeck, Michael Palm-Toft, Tomas H Jonasson, Josh Auty, Tero Aarnio.
