BATTLE OF THE BIG CATS!

Monday October 09, 2017
PETERBOROUGH will face holders Glasgow in the semi-finals of the SGB Championship KO Cup.

The Scottish side set up a mouth-watering showdown by beating Newcastle 92-88 on aggregate at the quarter-final stage.

The 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers have home advantage in the first leg which takes place at the East of England Arena this Sunday (October 15, 5pm).

The return clash is likely to be held on Tuesday at Peugeot Ashfield Stadium as the two sets of big cats do battle for the right to face either league champions Sheffield or Grand Final runners-up Ipswich in the showpiece.

Peterborough owner Ged Rathbone said: "We've already proved we can beat Glasgow home and away - and that will be the target again as we aim to reach the final.

"It's will be a massive occasion on Sunday. We need all fans - past and present - to turn out in force and roar the boys on.

"We're going to forget about the politics and focus on the job of trying to pick up another piece of silverware."

Peterborough could also be in home action on Friday (October 13, 7.30pm). They hope to host Edinburgh that night in their one remaining SGB Championship fixture when a victory could boost their hopes of snatching fifth place in the standings.

And it could prove to be a particularly busy weekend for top duo Jack Holder and Chris Harris as they also represent the club in the rearranged SGB Championship Riders' Individual at Glasgow on Saturday (October 14).
