Plymouth Devils end home matches with Edinburgh win

Plymouth Devils

Plymouth Devils finished off their home fixtures with a win after beating Edinburgh 50-43 in front of a packed St Boniface Arena.

Skipper Ben Barker (15) was once again in stunning form as Plymouth recorded their ninth home win in a row.

"I'm delighted to finish off our home meetings with another win," said team manager Gary Spiller.

"We were behind early on but we kept going and the team spirit and positivity in the pits got us through."

Spiller had sympathy for his opposite number though as Edinburgh lost star rider Craig Cook early in the meeting through injury.

"Losing an influential rider like Craig who goes well at the arena was hard for them.

"But we've faced that problem week after week for quite a chunk of the season and you've just got to beat what's in front of you and the boys stuck to the task," he added.

It was not a straight forward evening for the Devils though as several power failures nearly caused the meeting to be abandoned before a wheel had turned.

Plymouth conclude their season with a double-header away at Workington on Monday night.
