King’s Lynn boss Lyon wary of the Wolves
King's Lynn team boss Rob Lyon is wary of a powerful Wolverhampton septet in Wednesday's Elite League clash at the Norfolk Arena.
The Wolves' track grand prix ace Fredrik Lindgren, talented young GB racer Tai Woffinden and Saddlebow specialist Ty Proctor alongside the experienced Peter Karlsson and highly-rated reserve pair Tyson Burmeister and Ricky Wells.
The Stars have only lost once to leaders Eastbourne on home shale this season since returning to the top flight, but Lyon is under no illusions the Midlanders pose a stiff test.
'Neither team can afford to lose this and to be honest on paper Wolverhampton have been my biggest worry this season,' he said. 'They have a team suited to our track and I really can't see how the top five from each team are going to gain any points from each other. Tai Woffinden, Peter Karlsson and Freddie Lindgren are all very fast around here but then add Ty Proctor and Ludvig Lindgren into the mix and it starts to look really tough. All I can say is that the fans should expect some big battles out on the track.'
Lynn second string Neils-Kristian Iversen returns to the Norfolk Arena fresh from reaching the semi-finals of the GP qualifying series after a fourth-placed finish in the Czech Republic on Saturday. Iversen and Stars' compatriots Kenneth Bjerre and Mads Korneliussen have also been named in the Danish front five for the opening event of next month's speedway World Team Cup event at Vojens.
