THURSDAY PREVIEW – NICHOLLS STAYING DEFIANT

Wednesday July 24, 2019
PETERBOROUGH skipper Scott Nicholls says it’s been a boost for the sport to see the club back in the top level.

Crendon Panthers are unlikely to make the play-offs from here after a long line of injuries and a string of defeats in recent weeks.

But they head to rivals King’s Lynn on Thursday vowing to give their all with inspirational Nicholls saying it’s not over until mathematically impossible.

“It’s going to be really tough to get into those play-offs but while it’s mathematically possible you have to go into every race and into every meeting with a positive attitude,” he said.

“We’ve seen plenty of results this season that have surprised a few people so we have to take a little bit of positive inspiration and hope from that and see if we can pull off a couple more shocks between now and the end of the season.

“Getting into the play-offs will be tough like I say, but if we could at least restore a little bit of pride in the final month or two then that would be nice as it really has been great to see Peterborough back in the top flight this year.”

Panthers have Josh Grajczonek in for injured skipper Hans Andersen and former King’s Lynn man Simon Lambert deputises for Josh Bates.

Bates has travelled back to his South Yorkshire base after his release from hospital in Cambridge and says his rehab begins on Friday. He hasn’t give up hope of racing again this season.

KING’S LYNN: Robert Lambert, Michael Palm Toft, Erik Riss, Thomas Jorgensen, Craig Cook, Lewis Kerr, Nicklas Porsing.
PETERBOROUGH: Josh Grajczonek, Ty Proctor, Scott Nicholls, Charles Wright, Rohan Tungate, Aaron Summers, Simon Lambert.
