Injury-hit Eagles do play-off hopes a power of good

Injury-hit Eastbourne Eagles did their play-off hopes a power of good at the weekend.

On Saturday night at Arlington they destroyed Wolverhampton 61-32 with Lukas Dryml leading the way with 13+2 points from five rides – a paid maximum.

Lewis Bridger made his return from injury with two win and a second before missing his final outing in heat 13.

Coventry’s Edward Kennett stood in for the injured Joonas Kylmakorpi while Ludvig Lindgren deputised for the injured Denis Gizatullin.

Timo Lahti, who spent Wednesday night in hospital after a crash in Denmark, showed few ill effects with another good haul.

The previous night at Lakeside the Eagles had gone down 47-43 – a scoreline good enough to give them one league point.
