Leicester Lions lose despite Magnus Karlsson's heroics
A wonderful debut display from new signing Magnus Karlsson was not enough to save Leicester Lions from defeat against Sheffield Tigers.
Karlsson, who joined the club last week, secured a five-ride maximum against the Premier League leaders at Beaumont Park on Saturday.
But despite his best efforts Lions were edged out 48-45.
Leicester remain second bottom in the 14-team league, with just three wins and two draws from their 21 fixtures.
