PROMOTER Ged Rathbone believes Craig Cook’s medal-winning heroics can inspire the whole Peterborough team tonight.

The ‘T Balfe Construction’ Panthers go in search of a second Premier League away triumph in the space of four days when travelling to Workington (7.30pm).

Their challenge for success in Cumbria will be spearheaded by number one Cook only 24 hours after he helped Great Britain to an excellent finish as runners-up in the World Cup Final.

Rathbone said: “It was fantastic to see Great Britain ride so well last night and hopefully their silver medals can be a real shot in the arm for the sport.

“It was even more satisfying to have one of our own riders involved and I hope Craig’s achievement will serve as inspiration for our whole team tonight.

“We know we’re in for a very tough night as Workington have a strong line-up and boast a 100 per cent record at home.

“But we ended Sheffield’s unbeaten home record in the Premier League on Thursday and the challenge now is to do the same tonight at Workington to pick up another good result.”

Peterborough are at full-strength again tonight and boast plenty of Derwent Park know-how in their ranks.

Cook started his career in Comets colours while skipper Ulrich Ostergaard and reserve Ashley Morris have also raced for the Cumbrian club.


WORKINGTON: Ricky Wells, Mason Campton, Kenneth Hansen, Rasmus Jensen, Claus Vissing, Adam Roynon, Matt Williamson.

PETERBOROUGH ‘T BALFE CONSTRUCTION’ PANTHERS: Craig Cook, Tom Perry, Ulrich Ostergaard, Emil Grondal, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Ashley Morris, Zdenek Holub.
