KING'S Lynn skipper Robert Lambert has urged everyone at the club to pull together ahead of Monday's big home clash with Somerset.

Ruled out through injury, the talented Brit watched on as a makeshift Stars side were comfortably beaten 62-28 at Leicester on Saturday.

A patched-up side were unable to make an impact and Lambert says it's important to make the next fixture the focus.

"Riding with four guests and using rider replacement is never ideal," Lambert said.

"But Monday we've got a big home meeting against Somerset and as a team we know how important it is.

"I've had to take a few days off this weekend but hopefully after a bit of time away from it I'll be okay.

"We can still make the play-offs, and with a full-team against Somerset we could definitely get things back on track."

German racer Kai Huckenbeck, who managed two race wins at Beaumont Park said: "Leicester was always going to be a tough one because we had a team of guests and that's never easy.

"Rob still came down to help us out in the pits and hopefully he'll be okay to race for the team on Monday.

"We have to forget about tonight and make sure we go and win against Somerset."

A reminder that special admission offers are in place for Monday's home meeting against the Rebels.

Kids Under-11 will be admitted for free while adults admission has been reduced to just £10.
