PETERBOROUGH will secure Premiership leadership ahead of the play-offs if they defeat Sheffield at the East of England Arena tonight (Monday).
The Panthers have two opportunities at home this week to overhaul Wolverhampton, starting with the televised encounter with the Tigers.
And they will look to complete a double over their fellow play-off qualifiers, having won 50-40 at Owlerton on Thursday.
Thomas Jorgensen again guests at No.1 for the Panthers whilst Rising Star Jordan Palin returns from injury at reserve. The Tigers again bring in James Wright to replace the injured Stefan Nielsen.
Peterborough boss Rob Lyon said: “We’re looking to clinch that top spot against Sheffield to take the pressure off the boys on Thursday when King’s Lynn visit.
“We’re hopeful of getting another big crowd in and for the boys it’s just about doing what they have been doing again.
“There’s a little way to go but we are fully focussed. We’re in a good position, we’re feeling good – but there’s still a lot of hard work to be done.”
Tigers star Adam Ellis said: “It’s going to be a tough one. We saw on Thursday how strong they are right throughout their team, and they deserved the win.
“It’s good that we’re going to Peterborough though, because if we end up with them in the play-offs, this means we can get a few laps in around there beforehand.”
PETERBOROUGH: Thomas Jorgensen, Bjarne Pedersen, Michael Palm Toft, Scott Nicholls, Chris Harris, Jordan Palin, Hans Andersen.
SHEFFIELD: Jack Holder, Troy Batchelor, Kyle Howarth, Josh Pickering, Adam Ellis, Danyon Hume, James Wright.
