SWINDON v STARS, PREVIEW

Wednesday June 20, 2018
KING’S LYNN team manager Dale Allitt is considering his options for his side when they travel to the Abbey Stadium to take on Swindon on Thursday (7.30).

The Tru Plant Stars are awaiting a fitness update on Ty Proctor who missed their previous two fixtures because of a shoulder injury.

While Danish duo Kasper Andersen and Michael Palm miss the trip to Wiltshire after Andersen crashed out of the Stars’ home win against Rye House, and Palm Toft is in Championship action for Peterborough.

British Champion Robert Lambert will lead the Stars’ challenge after he backed up his paid maximum against the Rockets by scoring a 15-point maximum for Rospiggarna in Sweden on Tuesday.

Swindon go into the fixture at full-strength after Sheffield released Jack Smith which means he can take his place at reserve.

Allitt said: “Swindon is going to be hard because they’re a fantastic team on their home track. Tofty (Michael Palm Toft) is a big miss because he got paid-10 before but all you can do is beat what’s out in front of you. We’ll try and regroup, and we will try to get the best people in if we have to.

“Kevin Doolan comes in for Tofty and we all know a lot about Kevin, he’s been a hero here for a long time.

“All we want is a full team. We have proved at full-strength or missing one rider how dominate we can be. Fixed race-nights are making it really hard because it’s not what we thought it was going to be.”

SWINDON: Nick Morris, Adam Ellis, Tobiasz Musielak, David Bellego, Troy Batchelor, Zach Wajtknecht, Jack Smith.

KING’S LYNN: Niels-Kristian Iversen, Lewis Kerr, Ty Proctor or R/R, Thomas Jorgensen, Robert Lambert, Guest TBC, Kevin Doolan.
