Speedway: Swindon Robins rocked by emphatic Stars

Bjerre spearheaded the Stars to victory with a 12-point haul

King's Lynn Stars collected their first away points of the Elite League season with a 48-42 win at Swindon on Thursday.

The home side were in control up until heat 11 with Scott Nicholls (12) leading the way.

But the Stars fought back through Kenneth Bjerre (13) who was well supported by former Robins Olly Allen (9) and Mads Korneliussen (12).

Australian Nick Morris, guest riding from Glasgow, chipped in with seven.

It leaves Swindon still searching for their first victory in 2011 and eighth in the table.

King's Lynn have now claimed four wins out of five and are one point adrift of leaders Eastbourne.

Both sides face Poole Pirates next, Swindon travel to the south coast on Wednesday while King's Lynn host the Pirates two days later.
