Easy home win with our trick track and smooth surface which the Brummies won't be able to cope with, Bacon, Shanes and Hume have never riden well here and probably the only track the wonder kid won't get to grips with. That's what the Brummie fans will tell you as usual :). Seriously though should be a pretty close meeting, but think the deciding factor will probably be Dugard at reserve, with a home win,  but Birmingham could quite easily grab a point.

Not sure, Georgie's been on fire recently and so has Tom and will be hard too beat around Arlington even with their riders. Flint will add an interesting factor too it but being in the main team of course cant score as much as he usual would do and having to go up against big riders and with Jason having far more main team experience will be ahead of Flint on that side. Otherwise the rest of their team wont do that good at all, I would predict 5 points maybe between their 3 lower order riders which wont be enough with other 4 to win against us.

Should be a good one, can see it going either way.  Hopefully a few Brummie fans make the journey.

5 points from lower 3 riders??? that's 5 more than they usually score away from home : )

Eastbourne to win by 14 points imo! Hope I'm wrong!

Home win for me, I reckon the brummies will be happy with an away point.

BIRMINGHAM will be without Layne Cupitt for their National League trip to Eastbourne tonight (Saturday, 7.30).

The 20-year-old aggravated a hip problem during Thursday’s meeting at the Isle of the Wight and will miss the clash at Arlington.

Edwards Plumbing Brummies boss Laurence Rogers has booked Jamie Bursill as a guest who scored 3+1 against Birmingham on Thursday and who also has experience of the Arlington circuit racing in the Southern Development League.

EASTBOURNE: Georgie Wood, Jason Edwards, Mark Baseby, Charley Powell, Tom Brennan, Nick Laurence, Kelsey Dugard.

BIRMINGHAM: Tom Bacon, Callum Walker, James Shanes, Leon Flint, Danyon Hume, Arran Butcher, Jamie Bursill.

Best of luck to Leon Flint now he has moved into the main team, though I`m sure he will take it all in his stride.

with lots of one sided meetings in this league this meeting looks a cracker tbh, 3 good heat leaders on either side all good round the track, 2 young up n comers now in the top 5, and some reserves that tbh fall as often as they finish, a good meeting to go and watch ..

Should be a real close one but you never know with Eastbournes trick track

 

It is not a trick track. If you ever wanted to see a trick track - try Mildenhall for starters.

Mildenhall is or was a fast full throttle track and has produced terrific racing don’t recall it being tricky.

Eastbourne is difficult for inexperienced riders as they have to turn sharply and keep the gas on otherwise they wobble or fall.

The grippy conditions also have an effect and you tend to get strung out races unfortunately.
