King's Lynn Stars lose Lasse Bjerre for Poole tie
King's Lynn Stars will be without youngster Lasse Bjerre for Friday's visit of Poole Pirates.
Sheffield Tigers rider Josh Auty will replace the 17-year-old Dane, who is being called away by a rescheduled Danish meeting.
Stars boss Rob Lyon was unable to turn to Bjerre's doubling-up partner Sam Masters because of his commitment to Premier League Somerset.
"I don't expect it to be easy," Lyon said of the Poole clash.
"And I can see this being one of the hardest fought battles ever seen at King's Lynn. It won't be for the faint hearted, that's for sure."
