King’s Lynn Stars aiming to turn the tables on Swindon Robins
King's Lynn will be out for revenge as they host Swindon at the Adrian Flux Arena this evening.
The Stars slipped to a disappointing 55-38 defeat when the sides met at the Abbey last week.
However, they will now have a chance to bounce back with a victory and end the in-form Robins' winning run.
Team boss Rob Lyon says they are desperate to earn their third successive home triumph after nearly a month away from Saddlebow Road as they look to begin climbing the Elite League table.
'It's important we get revenge on Swindon after last week and get another three points on the board,' said Lyon.

Australian Troy Batchelor will make his eagerly-anticipated Saddlebow Road return against his former club – having completed his first meeting of 2016 in last week's match-up.
Robert Lambert is fit to ride after his crash at Swindon last week.
The visitors' Jason Doyle and Rohan Tungate are both expected to ride through the pain barrier after suffering heavy crashes in the past week.
A sixth successive win would take the Robins back to the top of the table if they manage to complete a quick-fire double at the Arena.
Swindon boss Alun Rossiter said: 'Things have been going well for us recently, and it was another good win against King's Lynn at our place last week.
'We just need to keep doing what we've been doing and hopefully get another good result from the away meeting.'
