Plymouth Devils staged a great comeback to secure an opening night draw with Rye House in the Premier League Cup.

Skipper Ben Barker led from the front with an impeccable 15-point maximum supported well by new signing Ryan Fisher (10+1) at the St Boniface Arena.

Devils fell behind early in the meeting and with three races left trailed Rye House by 10 points.

Barker and Fisher produced heroics in the final race to secure a 5-1 for Plymouth and a 45-45 draw on the night.

The draw leaves Plymouth second in the southern section of the League Cup competition where they will also face Leicester, Somerset and Ipswich.
