Fifteen heats of speedway at Poole tonight will decide whether King's Lynn's hopes of Elite League glory will continue until the last week of the season.
The Stars head to Dorset for their all-important play-off semi-final second leg trailing by one point. However, despite losing 45-44 on their own shale a week ago, Lynn team boss Rob Lyon insists his troops' dreams of reaching the club's first grand final are still more than achievable. He said: 'It was always going to be a close meeting on Monday.
'I did predict that both meetings would be close and I still think it will.
'It'll be a cliffhanger down there and it'll go down to the wire – I'm convinced of that.
'We do have a very good chance of pulling off a victory. It's not like we're going to a track that's like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. We know what we're going to get down there and pretty much all of our boys can get round it and score good points on it. There's still a long, long way to go.'
