King's Lynn ace Troy Batchelor says the Stars are desperate to turn their form around – starting when they head to Belle Vue tonight.

The Stars have suffered four successive defeats to all but end their Elite League play-off hopes.But Aussie Batchelor insists they are determined to end their frustrating season on a high as they head into two meetings in two days.

They travel to the National Speedway Stadium to take on the table-topping Aces this evening before hosting play-off chasing Wolverhampton, and world champion Tai Woffinden, tomorrow.

'We've had some pretty good results but a lot of bad ones recently,' said Batchelor.

'We just haven't seemed to be able to get a full team for whatever reason, and it's been tough for us.
