Stefan Andersson today admitted he has been left out in the cold by his Polish track.

But the Eastbourne Eagles star is happy to just be battling on two fronts as he continues his comeback from a worrying head injury.

Andersson scored paid nine in both of Eagles' last two meetings, at home to Belle Vue on Saturday and away to Reading on Tuesday.

He remains part of Piraterna's top-flight plans in his native Sweden.

But he will not be part of any Polish action ahead of Eagles' next fixture at Wolverhampton on Monday.

Ironically, Andersson says he has been shunned by Polish second-tier outfit Ostrow because of a spill on their own track.

The 35-year-old had ongoing head problems for several weeks after the fall in an early-season Open.

He said: "The first time I crashed this season in Poland I got concussion.

"I rode again two weeks after that and banged my head.

"But I've been feeling a lot better lately.

"The Poles can be a bit awkward sometimes.

"I said no to the first league meeting of the season because I had had a head injury.

"Since then I haven't heard from them.

"But that's okay. I'm quite happy just doing Sweden and England for now."

Andersson was not part of Piraterna's 48-48 draw at Bajen, for whom Nicki Pedersen scored 13+1 (5), in the second round of Elitserien fixtures on Tuesday.

But he expects to be involved when the Pirates host Elit Vetlanda next week.

Competing in different leagues is a way of life for top speedway riders.

Eagles skipper Pedersen, who had a five-win full house for Polish outfit Rzeszow on Sunday, completed a series of five meetings in four countries in five days by compiling another maximum for Danish track Holsted last night.

But some clubs fear their men are taking on too much.

Polish track Unia Tarnow this week banned Janusz Kolodziej, one of the men Andersson beat at Reading on Monday, from riding in England because they felt he was too tired for their own meetings.

Meanwhile, Edward Kennett could be set for another Eagles outing when they visit Wolves.

The Sussex-based rider on loan to Poole will step in if Dean Barker has not recovered from injury.

In-form Kennett could also replace Davey Watt if the Aussie pulls out.

But Watt, who managed just two heats at Reading before withdrawing with severe headaches, is adamant he will be there.

Eagles team manager Trevor Geer said: "Davey is definitely up for it.

"I've spoken to him and he is not even questioning the fact he will be there on Monday."

Watt rides in Poland the day before Eagles chase their fourth bonus point of the season at Monmore Green.

Eagles had not received new averages last night, which they hope suggests Andersson will remain in the top five and Lewis Bridger will be at reserve at Wolverhampton, a track he loves.

Bridger, though, has been told to prepare to ride at No. 2.
