PANTHERS PLAYING IT COOL

Sunday September 12, 2021
PETERBOROUGH will be relaxed and under no pressure in the big clash with Wolverhampton at Monmore Green on Monday (7.30).

If the home side win the top of the table meeting they will finish top of the Premiership and have choice of opponents for their semi-final.

Crendon Panthers boss Rob Lyon says his side are relaxed about the situation and will give it their all.

“We’ve done a great job so far this season,” he said. “But I must underline the fact that we’re just taking things one meeting at a time.

“If we can win at Wolves then of course we can finish top but it’s really not crucial because we have to have the belief that we can beat anybody over two legs.

“It’s not about Monday night, it’s about what we do over two legs in the play-offs but of course we’ll go to Wolves and give it our all as we always do.

“But we’re pretty relaxed about it, there’s no pressure on our shoulders and we’ll go there and enjoy it.”

Wolverhampton are without their skipper Rory Schlein who has tested positive for Covid.

Panthers will again utilise the rider replacement facility for injured ace Ulrich Ostergaard and Drew Kemp steps in for Jordan Palin at reserve.

WOLVERHAMPTON: Sam Masters, Luke Becker, Nick Morris, Ryan Douglas, Rory Schlein R/R, Broc Nicol, Leon Flint.

PETERBOROUGH: Ulrich Ostergaard R/R, Chris Harris, Michael Palm Toft, Scott Nicholls, Bjarne Pedersen, Drew Kemp, Hans Andersen.
