PETERBOROUGH and Wolverhampton have both stressed the importance of a fast start to tonight’s (Thursday) play-off semi-final at Alwalton.The Panthers lead by two points heading into the meeting, which has been swiftly re-arranged after the weather intervened on Monday.
And the home side will again make a late call on the fitness of Michael Palm Toft, who suffered damage to his left hand in the first leg.
Peterborough star Hans Andersen said: “It’s on a knife-edge because Wolves will be up for it, and it only needs them popping out the start in the first race and they could take the lead.
“We’ll need to ride the track like we normally would and hopefully we can get the job done and go through to the Final.”
Wolves’ USA ace Luke Becker said: “Hopefully now we’ll be able to have a good meeting on a good track after the rain-off on Monday. I think everyone agreed it was the right thing to call that off.
“So we go again and this time we can start well and hopefully get back in a winning position, although we know it will be tough against a strong Peterborough team.
“Burt two points isn’t much and we all believe we can go out there and win on the night, I don’t see why we can’t.”
