POOLE v STARS, PREVIEW

Tuesday October 08, 2019
KING’S Lynn finish their Premiership Supporters’ Cup campaign with a trip to Poole on Wednesday (7.30).

After losing to the reigning league champions in September, the Poultec Stars will want to bounce back and finish the year how they started it – with a win against the Pirates.

The Norfolk outfit have a growing injury list, though, with skipper Robert Lambert joining Danish duo Thomas Jorgensen and Michael Palm Toft on the sidelines after he aggravated a back injury over the weekend.

Stars bosses have opted to use the rider replacement facility in place of Lambert while seven-time British Champion Scott Nicholls and flying Fin Tero Aarnio come in as guests at second string. Meanwhile, Ulrich Ostergaard slots in at reserve.

Stars vice-captain, Lewis Kerr said: “We are looking forward to going to Poole. Some people say it is a nothing meeting, but as riders we still want to earn some money by doing what we do best and that is racing.

“Some of the boys have still got meetings in the Championship with the play-offs, so they will want to get some laps under their belts.

“I have still got some meetings left too and I am hopefully going to do an individual meeting as well. It is important for me to have a good end to the season.

“I have really got going for Lynn in the second half of the season which is good and hopefully it puts me in the picture for 2020.”

POOLE: Brady Kurtz, Nico Covatti, Nicolai Klindt, Josh Grajczonek, Jack Holder, Tomas H Jonasson, Ricky Wells.
KING’S LYNN: Robert Lambert R/R, Tero Aarnio, Erik Riss, Scott Nicholls, Craig Cook, Lewis Kerr, Ulrich Ostergaard
