Eastbourne Eagles aim to make it lucky 13 on Friday evening when they entertain Belle Vue at Arlington.

The team have lost only once this season at home and victory over the Manchester club will make it 13 out of 14 for the Eagles.

Team manager Trevor Geer has named an unchanged team for the fixture with Simon Gustafsson dropping to reserve and fellow Swede Kim Nilsson moving into the team proper.

Geer said, “Simon has been riding particularly well in recent weeks but the averages dictate that he moves down for our final league match of the season.

“Kim has done brilliantly for us since his arrival from Lakeside and his selection as the wild card nomination for the Swedish GP in his home town of Stockholm shows exactly how well he is going.”

Darcy Ward will be guesting for Belle Vue.
