Coventry Speedway: Bees desperate to get back to winning ways

COVENTRY are desperate to get back to winning ways when they host King’s Lynn at Brandon in the Elite League on Monday (7.30pm).

The Buildbase Bees are looking for a positive reaction after defeats to Swindon and Wolverhampton prior to a week off, and now want to put points on the board against the Stars.

The two sides are set to meet twice in 48 hours as Bees also visit the Adrian Flux Arena for a re-arranged fixture on Wednesday.

And they return to full strength for the fixtures, as James Sarjeant has recovered from illness and takes his place at reserve alongside Josh Bates.

King’s Lynn have an identical record to the Bees so far, with one win from three outings including a home defeat – as they were overturned on their own circuit by Belle Vue in their last Elite League outing.

The Stars do track one of the sport’s top men in Niels-Kristian Iversen, currently in the side as cover for the injured Troy Batchelor, whilst there is plenty of experience and track knowledge from the likes of Rory Schlein and Mads Korneliussen.

Teenage sensation Robert Lambert takes a heat-leader berth for the Stars and German newcomer Kai Huckenbeck has made a positive impression so far.

Bees boss Gary Havelock said: “I know King’s Lynn have already lost a home match, but that’s no guarantee that they’re going to be weak. They will come here seeing that we’ve lost a couple of home matches, albeit one in the Shield, so they’ll think they can get something and we have to be on our mettle.

“I spoke to some of the boys last week, and they’ll all be made aware in no uncertain terms of what we need, although I’m sure they already know it.

“Riders don’t like getting beaten, especially at home, and we as a club will certainly be hoping for a reaction to that on Monday.”

Supporters are reminded that neither meeting this week is being televised. Monday’s match was switched to this date in order to enable both teams to be able to track their full line-ups, due to a televised Polish fixture last Friday.

There is also a full second half on Monday with the Coventry Vikings facing the King’s Lynn Lightning in the Midland Development League.

KING’S LYNN (from): Kai Huckenbeck, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Mads Korneliussen, Robert Lambert, Lewis Rose, Rory Schlein, Carl Wilkinson.
