The Eastern Daily Press’ speedway columnist looked into his crystal ball on Saturday – but do you see the same picture?

Gavin Caney predicted how he thinks the Elite League will finish at the end of the regular 2014 season in our eight-page guide to the King’s Lynn Stars’ forthcoming season.

The 26-year-old believes Coventry Bees will completely turn their fortunes around after a miserable term which saw them finish rock bottom of speedway’s top flight. And our Lynn-based reporter feels they will be joined in the end-of-season play-offs by Belle Vue Aces, Lynn and 2013 Grand Final champions, Poole Pirates.

However, do you see it panning out differently?
