King's Lynn Stars travel to fellow play-off contenders Wolverhampton tonight aiming to complete a quick Elite League double.

Rob Lyon's troops pulled off a 10-point win over Wolves at home on Wednesday, and the Stars' boss wants more of the same during the return at Monmore Green this evening.

He said: 'It was a tight meeting on Wednesday, really, but the boys pulled away mid-match and gave us a bit of a cushion. We need to continue that form tonight and try and pick something up at their place. It won't be easy as they are unbeaten at home this season, but a win is achievable.'

The main body of Lyon's side remains the same with Niels-Kristian Iversen, Kenneth Bjerre and captain Rory Schlein taking heat leader spaces ahead of Nicklas Porsing and Robert Lambert – who continues to impress for the Stars.

Former Wolves man Ashley Morris is set for a return to his old track and he will be determined to impress when he rides at number six. However, Lewis Kerr – who yesterday aggravated a hip injury while racing for Newcastle – misses out. His place in the line-up will be taken by guest Steve Worrall.

The hosts have made two changes from their 50-40 defeat less than a week ago in Norfolk. Number one Freddie Lindgren is sidelined forcing Wolves to use Coventry's Chris Harris. Injured racer Tobiasz Musielak will be replaced by Harris' team-mate Danny King.

Wolves boss Peter Adams told his club's website: 'We haven't looked in any difficulties at home so far. Having lost a couple of away matches we need to get back on the winning trail and we're looking forward to doing that.

'Robert Lambert's absolutely the star of the show (for Lynn right now). I've been talking to Tai (Woffinden, former rider) about what the position might be as far as team GB's concerned in five years' time and it seems Lambert will certainly be a major ingredient in that. He's a very precocious talent and I'm looking forward to watching him ride myself.'
