EASTBOURNE promoter Jon Cook today claimed: “We're not frightened of the Witches.”

Cook's Eagles face Ipswich Witches at Foxhall Stadium tonight (7.30pm) in the quarter-final of the SkyBet Elite League speedway play-offs.

“Ipswich will start favourites, but we lost by just one point on our first league visit to Foxhall this year,” said Cook.

“We will be looking for any chink in the Ipswich armoury and will expose it if we can. If Ipswich have a rider who is having an off night we will exploit it to the full. We are not frightened about the task we face.

“We will put on a show, and underdogs have been known to win. So Ipswich will write us off at their peril.”
