Rob Lyon admits he is growing increasinly concerned by Kenneth Bjerre's indifferent start to the season.

The King's Lynn Stars' heat leader top-scored with paid 12 from five rides during the win against Belle Vue but recorded a disastrous return of one from four outings against Coventry last time out. Irrespective of the fact the Stars won both fixtures, Bjerre's team boss insists a solution to the Dane's patchy form must still be found sooner rather than later.

Lyon, who takes his troops to Leicester tonight, said: 'It's a strange one really because we know what he's capable of.

'I can't really sort of make any more comment on it at this stage as to why it's not working for him. But he's surely too good a rider to drop off so quickly without something being at the core of what the issue is.

'It's just trying to find out what that problem is. Even he can't find out the reason why. I know there's issues with some of the guys with silencers – trying to get the set-ups right and that sort of stuff – but he's too good to drop off as alarmingly as he has.

'The club comes first and it's all about results these days. We need to make sure we keep winning because Wednesday was a great performance. We like to stay loyal to our riders but ultimately it has to be what's right for the club.'

The 30-year-old, who rode in the 2014 Grand Prix series, will be aiming to get back on track as Lynn seek to end their winless away start to this Elite League campaign.

'Last year we went off like a train and we all know what happened with that,' added Lyon, whose men have lost all three of their meetings on the road so far this term.

'It's all about top four. It's peaking at the right time and we've had enough experience to know what it's all about in this league. We're not pressing any panic buttons at this stage. As long as we can keep our home form solid I'm sure the away points will come.'
