PETERBOROUGH have carried out extensive work on the East of England Showground track ahead of the biggest day of their season.

The 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers entertain Rye House (2.30pm) and Workington (5pm) in a must-win double-header on Sunday (September 4).

And promoter Ged Rathbone hopes to provide his new-look team, which will feature major signing Kenneth Bjerre and 2006 title hero Richard Hall, with the best possible surface.

Rathbone said: "Our track curator Dean Wyers and his staff carried out a lot of work on the track yesterday.

"So much new shale has gone onto it in recent weeks that a lot of layers and big ruts have appeared as a result.

"It has become very unpredictable for the riders and we've now tried to make it as smooth as possible for Sunday.

"Work will continue throughout the week with a lot of water going onto the base of the track to make sure it is in the best condition we can get it for 30 massive heats of speedway."

Peterborough are fifth in the Premier League standings as they big to cling onto a place in the play-offs.
