Ty hopes to help sink Potters

KING'S Lynn track Redcar's Aussie ace Ty Proctor for injured compatriot Darcy Ward in tonight's latest Premier League test against Stoke at the Norfolk Arena (7.45pm).
Proctor scored paid 16 in the Bears' recent 57-38 defeat at Saddlebow and was also drafted in for Lynn's Premier Trophy semi-final, first leg at Workington. Stoke were hammered 69-21 at Lynn in an early season Premier Trophy contest but team boss Rob Lyon is wary of a rejuvenated Potters outfit.
“It seems crazy that Stoke have won seven meetings and only lost two but that's speedway,” he said. “I believe they are a solid outfit, especially with Tom P Madsen at reserve, but with Ty Proctor coming in the line-up is full of racers on both teams.
“We had been racing at least twice a week plus the riders had been in other countries but because of the World Cup everyone got the whole week off. That gave a few of the riders time to deal with a few small injuries and after speaking to the team at the weekend it seems like they are all raring to get back out there and race.

“They are all enjoying it so much at the moment and with Stoke coming I know they are at least going to be up against a few good racers such as Lee Complin and Jason Bunyan.”
Lyon is targeting another impressive home display to tighten their grip at the top of the league standings.

“It is great to be at the top but now the pressure is on us to stay there,” he said.
“We can not take it for granted that we are simply unbeatable because as Birmingham proved last year, you can get caught off guard and one lose at home could mean the end of any league winning hopes.”
