PATCHED-UP PANTHERS LAUNCH HECTIC SPELL

Thursday September 02, 2021
PANTHERS launch a hectic spell with six meetings in three weeks tonight.

Rob Lyon’s side head to Ipswich where they are looking for more valuable away points before returning home to the Showground against the same opposition on Monday.

They have visits to Wolverhampton and Sheffield lined up alongside more home meetings with Sheffield and King’s Lynn to round off the regular league programme before play-offs at the end of the month.

And with Ulrich Osergaard already out with back and wrist injuries, the club are now sweating on youngster Jordan Palin at reserve after a collarbone injury sustained riding in the Championship at Redcar last week.

Wolves youngster Leon Flint is lined up to replace him as a guest rider for tonight.

They’re also without Bjarne Pedersen who has suffered from illness and missed the last week – Erik Riss steps in.

And Danish racer Thomas Jorgensen has managed to rearrange his travel plans to deputise for Ostergaard at the last minute.

Manager Rob Lyon said: “There are another seven points up for grabs and we’ve got to grab every single one if we can.

“Sometimes you look at the Ipswich side and think it looks pretty strong, but their results haven’t reflected that.

“It’s about what we do, I always say that, we are strong and we’re riding well so let’s see what happens.”

Hans Andersen will remain at reserve to add some steel in depth to the side throughout September.

The club legend said: “It’s a pretty even team, and we will always have a strong rider down at reserve.”

IPSWICH: Danny King, Paul Starke, Jason Crump, Jake Allen, Craig Cook, Anders Rowe, Drew Kemp.

PETERBOROUGH: Thomas Jorgensen, Erik Riss, Michael Palm Toft, Scott Nicholls, Chris Harris, Leon Flint, Hans Andersen.
