KING'S Lynn owner Keith Chapman has challenged his side to brush up on their gating skills following a 65-26 defeat at in-form Rye House.

The Trucks 'R' Us Stars were able to record just one race win at Hoddesdon - courtesy of club captain Robert Lambert who scored half of the team's total points.

But Chapman says there's no time to dwell on the performance against the play-off pushing Rockets and wants to see more from his riders when they travel to Poole on Wednesday (7.30).

"We were made to pay for being second best out of the gate all night long," Chapman said.

"They left us standing still at the starts and it's not the first meeting of late where that's been the problem.

"Once they're away from the start line, our riders chase so hard and they never give up, but it's time they started making lives a bit easier for themselves by getting out in front in the first place.

"Hopefully they can sort that out pretty quickly and it would be nice if they could do so at Poole on Wednesday.

"We've already won once at Poole this season and if our riders go there with the right attitude again and make some starts, then why wouldn't we be able to get something out of the meeting?

"The riders are so desperate to try and get another win under their belts and hopefully it comes sooner rather than later because before we know it the season will be over."
