King's Lynn Stars captain Olly Allen will be aiming for a 10-point lead from their Elite League play-off semi-final first leg against Poole Pirates.

The Pirates visit Norfolk on Monday with the return fixture seven days later.

"We're going to aim for 10 points," Allen told BBC Radio Norfolk.

"If we can do that then next week will be close and it's possible for us to do something - a 10-point lead is realistic," the 29-year-old added.

"The best thing you can do from a rider's point of view is just get every point you can and see how far ahead you are at the end of the match.

"Sometimes if you aim for 10 points you reach it and maybe slow down, we don't want to do that, we just want to win by as much as we can."
