PETERBOROUGH host Wolverhampton in a televised clash between two of the Premiership’s early top three tonight (Monday).
The Panthers, who won twice last week, will leapfrog their opponents into second place with a home win at the East of England Arena – whilst Wolves have top spot in their sights if they can make it four wins out of five.
Visiting skipper Rory Schlein is still absent due to injury with the rider-replacement facility in operation, whilst youngster Leon Flint stands in at reserve following the retirement of Tom Bacon.
Panthers boss Rob Lyon said: “They are a strong side and Chris Van Straaten and Pete Adams know what they’re doing when assembling a team.
“They’ve been very astute in every department and I expect them to provide us with the ultimate test.
“In Nick Morris and Ryan Douglas they have a solid partnership and both can take a ride for Rory, as can the classy Sam Masters. They’ll cause us problems, but we have to have faith in our own ability to go out there and do the business.”
Stand-in Wolves skipper Masters said: “We’re going well at the moment but we need to keep it going.
“There’s no easy meeting but we’re working well as a team and everyone is getting on great together.
“Hopefully we can keep our form good and keep picking up those points as we go along.”
