KING’S Lynn go for a second successive home win when they take on Sheffield at the Adrian Flux Arena tonight (Monday).
The bottom club are on an improved run having defeated Belle Vue last time out on their own circuit as well as suffering two narrow last-heat decider defeats on the road.
The Tigers hand a debut to new signing Stefan Nielsen and also have Danyon Hume standing in at reserve, and they go into the meeting four points behind fourth-placed Ipswich but with four matches in hand.
Stars boss Alex Brady said: “I’m just about over the narrow defeat at Ipswich on Thursday where again the boys did themselves proud.
“Now we need to head home and see the place packed. The fans made one heck of a difference with the feel-good factor against Belle Vue and they were like an extra rider for us.
“We need to continue that against Sheffield who have some class riders in their side. We know it will be tough, but we can do it, I’m confident of that.”
Nielsen said: “This week’s meetings could turn out to be so important as Sheffield aim to get into those play-offs, and hopefully we can add some more points and get a win or two away from home too.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to come back into the Premiership now; I’ve been going well for Poole lately so my confidence is up, and I know I can score some points.”
KING’S LYNN: Richard Lawson, Cameron Heeps, Erik Riss, Lewis Kerr, Thomas Jorgensen, Connor Mountain, Ricky Wells.
SHEFFIELD: Jack Holder, Josh Pickering, Troy Batchelor, Kyle Howarth, Adam Ellis, Stefan Nielsen, Danyon Hume.
