Inside Track 2013: Captain Mads Korneliussen’s weekly look inside the Norfolk Arena

Tonight is massive and we need every one of our fans behind us.
I understand our supporters' frustration. We started like a winning team and now it seems to all be falling apart. But a lot of that isn't our fault. The number of injuries we've had is unreal.
Sacking people, or slagging them off, is not the right choice, especially as some of the new lads still haven't found their feet.
We need to stick together as one big King's Lynn Stars unit.
I'm so pumped for Peterborough's arrival. And people off the track can help us by being positive and making lots of noise.

A loud parade and cheering us up to the tapes, and after races, is only going to help inspire us.
We owe the Panthers one as we went down big there about a fortnight a go. It was awesome to beat them home and away on Good Friday and we need to do the same in Lynn again this evening – because losing to Belle Vue on Monday sucked.

I said to Rob Lyon that we needed to pick up eight points this week by getting four there, three at home to Peterborough and at least one at Lakeside on Friday. Now it's going to be really hard for us to even get seven.
It was not good enough in Manchester. We didn't even get a point at one of the weakest teams. Lots of people are pointing fingers but you can't fault the effort of everyone, including Young Stars' Lewis Kerr. He rode his socks off in heat nine, it was maybe his best ride ever, and he was unlucky to get pipped at the death.
Me top-scoring counts for nothing. Rory's (Schlein) is still struggling with his set-ups and he had another bad night. He's had a dip in form and we need him back on fire. It didn't help that the referee made a beautiful example of the inconsistency I wrote about last week. He excluded Rory for not being at the tapes (I wish England would bring the clocks in on the green like every other country does) inside two minutes. He hadn't done it to anyone else on the night!
