Eagles keen to erase Kings Lynn defeat

Eastbourne Eagles go to King’s Lynn tonight (Wednesday) for an Elite League match keen to erase the memory of their early-season defeat at the Norfolk Arena.

Back in March, Joonas Kylmakorpi crashed on the first bend of heat one and that was curtains for the Eagles.

Kylmakorpi was out for more than two months. He’s back now and in fine form and the Eagles will hope he has no colly-wobbles over the track at King’s Lynn.

The Eagles will be without Denis Gizatullin (Russian league match) and Chris Schramm steps in.

Next match at Arlington is on Saturday when they entertain Birmingham (7.30pm).
