Hammers to take on Kings Lynn tonight
9:51am Monday 19th May 2014 in Sport
SPEEDWAY: The Elite League’s top two sides in the table clash at 7.30pm tonight (Monday May 19) at the Arena Essex Raceway when the Vortex Lakeside Hammers take on King’s Lynn.
It's the toughest test yet for the home side and following a poor performance from their top three riders, which cost the team a victory at Poole, Promoter Jon Cook expects his riders to raise their game.
Cook said: "There are no excuses come Monday. We need the win and our heat leaders need to show the way. Fans have every right to be upset when the same riders perform elsewhere after abject showings for their actual team. On Monday they can put that right."
Teams (in alphabetical order):- The Vortex Lakeside Hammers: Mikkel Bech, Lewis Bridger, Adam Ellis, Peter Karlsson, Richard Lawson, Ben Morley and Davey Watt (captain).
King’s Lynn Stars: Kenneth Bjerre, Niels Kristian Iversen, Lewis Kerr, Robert Lambert, Nicklas Porsing, Lewis Rose and Rory Schlein (captain).
