Adam Shields is ready to quit the Polish League amid fears he is about to be axed by the team for whom he suffered serious injury.

The Eastbourne Eagles star believes second division outfit Lublin want to cut their losses after a poor start to the season.

That would severely affect the Aussie's earning potential but give him more time to concentrate on riding for Eastbourne and Swedish top flight outfit Vargarna.

Shields suffered serious injuries in Lublin's second match of the season and, in his absence, they have slipped to fifth in the seven-team division.

The 29-year-old is now back in action and recently completed seven meetings in 11 days.

But he admits relations with Lublin are strained. He said: "I'm going to be busy for the rest of the season.

"How busy depends whether I go back and do any more in Poland but the club over there are a being a bit funny.

"I was one of their top riders and over there your reserves are very important. We had a very strong reserve, Andreas Messing, and he got injured at the start of the season.

"They are not really sure whether they will use me any more because they are not in a position to do well.

"They have kind of indicated I might be finished there."

Top-flight matches in Poland usually attract five-figure gates and even Lublin would expect to draw bigger crowds than an an English Elite League club.

Meetings are generally held on Sundays, which means riders can top up their earnings considerably without missing an Elite League fixture.
