Dane Nicklas Porsing makes his King's Lynn return as they aim to crush Lakeside's play-off dream.

The Stars' asset makes his comeback in place of axed skipper Rory Schlein as Lynn attempt to end a miserable Elite League season on a high – and begin formulating plans for next term.

The 23-year-old rode for the club from 2013-15 but lost his place in Rob Lyon's side over the winter. But now he has another chance to impress at the Adrian Flux Arena, starting tonight against the Hammers.

The visitors are desperate to keep their top-four hopes alive with a positive result at Saddlebow Road but a win for Swindon, fourth, at home to Leicester could end their chances this evening if they fail to leave Norfolk with any points. For Lynn, seventh out of eight, there's nothing but pride at stake in their penultimate home meeting of the campaign.

Team boss Lyon said: 'It's been tough to motivate riders and ourselves, but we always bear in mind our fanbase, many who have been coming for a long time, who pay to come in and watch us attempt to win speedway meetings.

'We've got to be as positive as possible and try to finish the season on as much of a high as we can, and look towards 2017, whatever that may be in terms of league structure. These last six meetings are a chance for the current riders, if they're interested in racing for King's Lynn next year, to show us what they're made of.'

James Sarjeant will guest for Lynn in place of the injured Simon Lambert.
