PREVIEW: PETERBOROUGH v IPSWICH (Prem)

PETERBOROUGH host second placed Ipswich in a big Premiership clash of East Anglian rivals tonight (Monday).

The Panthers finally got off the mark with three league points from last week’s Super Heat drama against Sheffield, whilst the Witches have performed well on the road so far with seven points from three matches on their travels.

Jordan Palin returns as Rising Star for Peterborough, whilst Ipswich will make a late call on the fitness of Paul Starke as he closes in on his comeback from injury, with the sides also scheduled to meet at Foxhall on Thursday.

Panthers boss Rob Lyon said: “We need to build momentum and get this thing on the road, and there’s no reason why we can’t win the meeting.

“We’ve turned Ipswich over home and away already this year, we did it last year twice, and I don’t see why we can’t do it for a fourth time.”

Ipswich manager Ritchie Hawkins said: “We have started the season very well so far away from home, and we go to Peterborough which is a place we enjoy going to.

“They are still the league champions, and they still possess a team full of very good speedway riders who can no doubt hit form at any point. We are going to have to be at the top of our game, as we have been in the other three away meetings, to get the better of Peterborough over two meetings.”

PETERBOROUGH: Michael Palm Toft, Ulrich Ostergaard, Hans Andersen, Scott Nicholls, Chris Harris, Benjamin Basso, Jordan Palin.
IPSWICH: Jason Doyle, Paul Starke (or R/R), Danny King, Erik Riss, Troy Batchelor, Ben Barker, Danyon Hume.
