WOLVERHAMPTON v STARS, PREVIEW

Sunday September 01, 2019
KING’S Lynn face a ding-dong battle against Wolverhampton at Monmore Green on Monday (7.30).

Both sides know they need a win to keep their hopes of reaching the play-offs alive. The Poultec Stars are the only team yet to win away in the league this term, and there is no time like the present to clinch their first away victory.

The Norfolk side will travel to the Midlands at full strength with Nicklas Porsing making his return from injury at reserve - while a familiar face, Dale Allitt, will take charge of the Stars for one night only with regular boss Peter Schroeck unavailable.

German racer Erik Riss said: “We only have four meetings left now, so it is getting closer to the play-offs so, it is getting more and more important that we get a win away from home.

“We are quite confident of winning both of our remaining meetings at home, but we know we have to win at least one meeting on the road to keep our hopes of getting in the play-offs.

“I don’t really have any explanation why we are struggling away. At Belle Vue we got smashed there and I don’t think we expected that to happen because we all had hopes that we could win or keep it close there, but we lost big time!

“Obviously, every rider knows what they’ve done wrong but away from home we just seem to not be on it, on the day. When you’re away you have got to remember all the home riders know how to setup their bike straight away and that is our challenge on the road and it just seems that we haven’t managed to do that so far.

“Monmore Green is quite a small technical track and it is quite similar to Edinburgh where I spent four years and I was quite good there. I expect to have a good performance at Wolverhampton.

“I have had good meetings there in the past, although in my one appearance there this year I had bike issues only scoring one point so, I really want to make up for that.

“Wolverhampton need a win and so do we which means it will be serious and it is going to be on because both teams have to win on Monday. It is going to be a tough meeting for sure but we’re up for it!”

WOLVERHAMPTON: Sam Masters, Kyle Howarth, Rory Schlein, Nick Morris, Jacob Thorssell, Ryan Douglas, Luke Becker.
KINGS LYNN: Robert Lambert, Michael Palm Toft, Erik Riss, Thomas Jorgensen, Craig Cook, Lewis Kerr, Nicklas Porsing.
