BRADLEY COULD BE BACK

Thursday September 07, 2017
BRADLEY Wilson-Dean will return to the Peterborough line-up tomorrow (Friday) - providing he comes through a morning practice session with no ill effects.

The New Zealand champion has only appeared in one of the 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers last eight SGB Championship fixtures due to a wrist injury.

But, after undergoing physiotherapy, Wilson-Dean will take to the East of England Arena track early tomorrow to test his fitness.

And, if all goes to plan, he will slot back into the Peterborough side for a home clash against Scunthorpe later in the day (7.30pm).

Team manager Carl Johnson said: "It will be a big boost to have Bradley back on a bike.

"We've certainly missed him as we've had to operate rider replacement in the majority of meetings while he has been out.

"Bradley is a six-point rider capable of performing really strongly home and away, so it is far from ideal when three of his rides have to be taken by reserves.

"Bradley started the season superbly at reserve and has certainly held his own in the main body of the side. Hopefully he can now have a big finish and help us achieve our aim of winning more silverware."

Peterborough are chasing the SGB Championship KO Cup crown while Wilson-Dean is also gunning for title glory in the SGB Premiership with Swindon.
