DALE Allitt says the Tru Plant Stars 58-32 victory over Poole has sent out a statement to their rivals ahead of the Premiership Play-Offs.

The Stars’ boss was thrilled by his team’s performance in front of a bumper crowd at the Adrian Flux Arena.

He said: “We did exactly what we needed to do, we put a statement out with this result against Poole, the boys were fantastic again, and Buster (Chapman) did a fantastic job with the track which was exactly what we wanted.”

The Norfolk outfit were in stunning form as they opened the meeting with three straight 5-1’s, which put them 15-3 up.

Great Britain international Chris Harris managed to stop the run of home’ race wins with an excellent victory in heat four.

That joy for the Pirates was short-lived, as the Stars hit back with three heat advantages in the following four heats, extending their lead to 22 points.

The Pirates finally got their first heat advantage on the board in heat nine, when Kacper Woryna pulled off a stunning move on turn two, to grab the lead, while Chris Harris secured third place in a Poole’ 4-2.

Further heat advantages in heats 10 and 11 extended the Tru Plant Stars lead to 26 points going into the interval.

The Visitors looked to add some respectability after the break with Brady Kurtz and Harris securing a 4-2 in heat 13.

Home skipper Robert Lambert then rounded off the night with an excellent victory in heat 15, as the Stars closed out the meeting with yet another heat advantage in what was a stunning team performance from the Norfolk side.

Allitt added: “We now head to Wolverhampton full of confidence. Having said that, it’s not a place that we have done well at, I am sure they’ll be up for it as well because they need points to get in the play-offs too. I say it every time that we just have to take it one meeting at a time.”
