Lakeside Hammers capped off an excellent two days with a vital win over King’s Lynn at the Arena-Essex Raceway.

Just 24 hours after keeping their Elite League play-off hopes alive with a consolation point at the Adrian Flux Arena, the Vortex Hammers avoided any slip-ups with a comprehensive home win.

It was a dominant performance from the Purfleet outfit to comfortably claim three points and keep their top-four bid on track.

They will now watch on anxiously as Swindon head to Belle Vue on Wednesday as if the Robins leave Manchester empty handed it will set up a mouth-watering showdown at Purfleet on September 16 which could see the Hammers snatch fourth spot.

Lakeside coach Kelvin Tatum was pleased to see his side put in a professional performance in their penultimate fixture to keep the pressure piled on Swindon.

He said: “King’s Lynn were depleted, and they were second best but we had a job to do and we went about it very professionally.

“It was a good performance, and we’ve managed to put the pressure back on Swindon over the last two days.

“It’s all looking very tight and Swindon still have a chance to get a point at Belle Vue. We just have to hope that the Aces win by seven points or more and we’ll be all set up for a showdown with Swindon at Lakeside in a fortnight’s time.”

Edward Kennett roared to a faultless, four-ride paid maximum for the hosts whilst Andreas Jonsson, Lewis Bridger, Lewis Kerr and Ben Morley also suffered just one defeat apiece.

Reserve Morley enjoyed a superb return to the side, striking four paid wins in his opening four rides before missing out on a paid maximum with a fall in heat 15.

Swedish star Kim Nilsson also notched double figures whilst Richard Lawson put in a solid showing as the hosts recorded 11 race wins and ran just two last places.

Hammers: Edward Kennett 11+1, Kim Nilsson 11, Lewis Kerr 10, Ben Morley 8+4, Lewis Bridger 8+1, Andreas Jonsson 7+2, Richard Lawson 5+2.

Stars: Niels-Kristian Iversen 12+2, Troy Batchelor 10, Michael Palm Toft 3, Kai Huckenbeck 3, Carl Wilkinson 3, Rob Branford 1, Robert Lambert r/r.
