Speedway: King's Lynn Stars' Allen eyes play-off 'high'

Olly Allen has said leading King's Lynn Stars to the Elite League play-offs would be his greatest achievement.

Fourth-placed Stars can secure a top four finish with three points against Birmingham Brummies on Wednesday.

"This would be as high as anything I've done," the Norwich-born 29-year-old told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"It means a lot because it's my local team and I'm captain, so it makes it more important. It's as big as anything I've achieved."

King's Lynn have made an instant impact on their return to the Elite League, after a nine-year absence from the top flight.

"If somebody said you could finish top three or four, you'd have snatched their hand off," Allen admitted.

"It's up to us now to do it, it's in our own hands, we haven't got to rely on anybody else."

Allen, a former title winner with Peterborough and Coventry, insisted the Stars can become even stronger in the play-offs.

"Even in matches where we've won easily at home I feel there's points we could've had.

"I think there's more to come, definitely away from home."
