Eastbourne Eagles face trial by television at Arlington Stadium tomorrow night.

The Sussex squad take on a power-packed Belle Vue side in their first live TV match of the season just three days after suffering a shock reverse at Wolverhampton.

Eastbourne need to get their Elite League title challenge back on track after being stunned by a Wolves comeback which saw them overturn an eight-point deficit with four races left to win 47-43.

One man who will want to impress is Eagles skipper Joe Screen, who began his career at Belle Vue and will feel he has a point to prove.

Screen announced last week he was quitting the world championship after being left out of this year's Grand Prix series.

It will not be lost on Eagles that they have a far from perfect record in front of the cameras at Arlington, having lost twice to Poole and been beaten by Ipswich in the past.

Belle Vue have Leigh Adams, last season's No. 1 rider in the league, in place of the injured Jason Crump, plus the high-scoring Jason Lyons and track record-holder Sam Ermolenko.

That should ensure Eagles are put to the test and Eastbourne boss Jon Cook is warning against taking anything for granted, especially in the later stages of the match.

He said: "We're not making any excuses for what happened at Wolverhampton. There are times when you have to put your hands up and admit you were beaten by a better team on the night.

"It was an unbelievable team effort by Wolves."

Cook, however, is concerned that Eagles were in a winning position at Wolverhampton and also let a commanding lead slip at home to Coventry.

Tomorrow's teams:

Eastbourne: Mark Loram, David Norris, Dean Barker, Stefan Andersson, Joe Screen, Savalas Clouting, Toni Svab.

Belle Vue: Brian Karger, Matej Ferjan, Sam Ermolenko, Jason Lyons, Leigh Adams, Tomasz Jedresek, Lee Smethills.

The start is at 7.30.
