BIRMINGHAM were made to pay for a poor start at Stoke in the M6 Trophy in their 54-41 defeat.

Graham Drury’s men were 17-7 down after just four races as the Potter were quicker away from the start and won every race.

Skipper Jason Lyons was nominated for double points in his second outing but the star of the show was Jason Bunyan, one of Stoke’s winter signings.

He started the race from a 15-metre handicap after touching the tapes but sensationally managed to pass Lyons on the third lap to bring the house down.

Marek Mroz was a major plus for the Perry Barr side with a good score in reserve and fellow Polish ace Tomasz Piszcz won his tactical ride to arrest the slide.

The BRC Roofing Brummies were able to keep the score respectable and Lyons has the last word with an impressive win in the final race over former Birmingham man Phil Morris.

STOKE: Phil Morris 11+2, Jason Bunyan 11+1, Jesper Kristiansen 9+2, Glen Phillips 6+1, Klaus Jacobsen 7, Lee Complin 6, Tom Madsen 4.
BIRMINGHAM: Jason Lyons 11, Marek Mroz 10+2, Tomasz Piszcz 10, Robert Ksiezak 4, Ludvig Lindgren 3+1, Ben Hopwood 2, Richard Sweetman 1+1.
