Peter Schroeck says King's Lynn need to build on their previous home win when they take on Swindon on Monday night (7.30pm).

The Poultec Stars will be looking to bounce back from their Supporters' Cup defeat to the Robins on Thursday, which secured the Wiltshire outfit a spot in the final against Belle Vue.

German racer Erik Riss is set to make his comeback from injury against the Robins after replacing Ty Proctor in the Stars' line-up.

The club received news that young American Broc Nicol has suffered concussion and a broken collarbone whilst guesting for Redcar at Leicester on Saturday which means Simon Lambert will slot in at reserve.

Swindon travel east with Troy Batchelor coming up against his former club, while club asset Stefan Nielsen will be returning to their line-up after they confirmed he has signed for the club.

Stars' boss Schroeck said: "After what we did against Belle Vue we want to build on that. We have got Swindon in town and they will be tough cookies, but we know what we are doing at home now.

"We have got Erik Riss back, which should give us a boost, and we will see what happens. Erik has been robbed of a few meetings with the accident he had, but he is really excited to be coming back.
