King’s Lynn Stars favourite Thomas Jorgensen hopes they can show their character when they head to Rye House on Wednesday (7.30).
The Trucks R Us Stars suffered a last-gasp home defeat against Somerset on Monday after a battling performance.
Jorgensen, who top scored with an impressive 12+1 point haul, admits they were hugely disappointed to miss out at the death.
But he has urged them to issue a response and add to their SGB Premiership points tally at Hoddesdon.
“We’re going there to win it, and we’ll hopefully get some points on the board,” Jorgensen said.
“The weather forecast doesn’t look great, but fingers crossed it will improve so we can get the meeting on.
“I was pleased with my performance on Monday, but it was frustrating to be on the losing team. It was a tight meeting all the way through and it was a shame we didn’t quite get the win, but we’ll just have to pick ourselves up ready for the next meeting.
“We want to get in the play-offs so we need to move on from the Somerset meeting and concentrate on a good performance at Rye House.”
The Stars operate rider replacement to cover for Michael Palm Toft, who is in action in Denmark, whilst Rye House are at full strength.
Palm-Toft, who could be back in action for the Stars at Belle Vue on Friday evening, admitted it may take a bit of time for the new Stars line-up to settle.
“Hopefully we can get better and better as the next few weeks go on and we can pick up some more points,” he said.
Meanwhile, everyone connected with King’s Lynn Speedway would like to offer their congratulations to Kai Huckenbeck after he was named wildcard for the IPONE German FIM Speedway Grand Prix next month.
Huckenbeck will make his Grand Prix debut in Teterow on September 9 after being handed the No.16 race jacket.
