King's Lynn Stars' meeting at Poole on Thursday night is off.

The Premiership Supporters Cup clash was called off because of adverse weather conditions.

The decision may have been something of a blessing in disguise for Lynn, who were missing a number of key riders.

Craig Cook had reported ill and was ruled out of the trip following a visit to his doctor, with the Stars moving quickly to secure the services of Chris Harris as a guest rider.

The Stars were already struggling with a growing injury list, though, with skipper Robert Lambert joining Danish duo Thomas Jorgensen and Michael Palm Toft on the sidelines after he aggravated a back injury over the weekend.

Lynn had opted to use rider replacement in place of Lambert, while seven-time British champion Scott Nicholls and flying Finn Tero Aarnio had been booked as guests at second string with Ulrich Ostergaard due to ride at reserve.
