King's Lynn boss Rob Lyon says his side have got what it takes to spring a surprise at Wolverhampton tonight.

Stars head to the Midlands after snatching a last-gasp draw at home to Swindon on Thursday. They face a Wolves side who are unbeaten at Monmore Green this year, but Lyon insists his team are going there with a positive attitude.

'The Elite League this year has been very topsy turvy with teams winning away and then losing at home and anyone can beat anyone,' said Lyon.

'We've got a solid team and we are going to Wolverhampton with a positive mindset of coming away with a result – and in some people's eyes, that would be something of a surprise.

'Getting that last heat 5-1 against Swindon made Thursday's result feel like a win so we've got a bit of confidence.'
