Speedway fans should be in for a thriller at King's Lynn's Norfolk Arena tonight when three Grand Prix stars take to the Saddlebow Road shale.

The Stars' Niels-Kristian Iversen and Poole Pirates' pair Darcy Ward and Chris Holder were part of Saturday's incredible GP in Poland.

And after last season's sensational meeting between the two Elite League clubs last June – which saw Lynn end Poole's 18-match unbeaten run – Stars' team boss Rob Lyon expects another cracking night's racing, in front of the Sky Sports cameras, come tapes up.

He said: 'I'm sure we'll be in for some thrilling races, especially when these guys are in town. We all know what Darcy and Chris are about.

'It's going to be a tough meeting and another exciting one for the fans. Hopefully we can come out on the right side of another one and pick up three league points.

'It would be nice to go into two matches with Swindon next week with some more league points in the back.'

Lynn took a point away from the south coast after their 48-45 loss in the reverse fixture earlier this term. But they'll have to operate with the rider/replacement facility this evening with Simon Stead still recovering from a dislocated shoulder. Ex-Stars' rider Maciej Janowski, now at Poole, will also be in action.
