CRUNCH TIME!

Wednesday September 07, 2020
PETERBOROUGH'S play-off fate hinges on huge home meetings either side of this weekend.

'T Balfe Construction' Panthers bosses have moved swiftly to reschedule both clashes postponed when their planned double-header fell victim to a waterlogged track last Sunday.

In addition to the previously announced East of England Showground showdown against fellow top-six hopefuls Workington Comets this Friday (September 9, 7.30pm), Peterborough will now entertain bottom side Rye House on Monday, September 12 (7.30pm).

"We've pulled out all the stops to ensure both of these crucial meetings are scheduled ahead of the September 19 cut-off date," said Peterborough promoter Ged Rathbone.

"The Showground is not available after Tuesday due to the big Land Rover show taking place. We had to move quickly and we thank the promotions of Workington and Rye House for their co-operation.

"We appreciate that it is short notice, and we also fully understand the expense involved, but we urge as many fans as possible to get behind the team in both meetings.

"We have to pick up maximum points to keep ourselves in contention for a place in the play-offs and the backing of the supporters makes a huge difference."

Peterborough will be at full strength when they host Workington on Friday as their revamped team, featuring all four recent recruits Kenneth Bjerre, Anders Thomsen, Richard Hall and Danny Halsey, takes to the track for the first time.

But they will be without number one Craig Cook against Rye House due to an Elite League fixture clash.

Lasse Bjerre of Redcar has been drafted in as a guest for Cook and will race alongside his older brother, Kenneth, in the Panthers ranks.
