Redcar v Peterborough preview
This Thursday sees the Redcar SG Petch Bears face the Peterborough Panthers at the Media Prima Arena in Championship action, with a 7:30pm start.
The Bears will be looking to keep their good run of form going, which sees them sitting in 4th place in the table at the moment. A win would see them leapfrog Sheffield into 3rd and boost hopes of a play off place at the end of the season.
Once again the Bears will be without broken scaphoid victim Jason Garrity. Rye House man Stuart Robson will come in to guest for him after impressing Bears promoter Kevin Keay while guesting against Scunthorpe on Sunday:
Seeing the way Stuart fitted in with the team on Sunday both on and off the track it made sense to bring him in again, he’s very good at passing on his experience to the other lads and his team riding ability is second to none.
Peterborough will also be without their number one Chris Harris for this meeting. Bomber, as he is affectionately known, is representing Team Gb in the World Cup after the sides brilliant win in Event 1 on Saturday. Glasgows Richie Worrall will replace him.
The Panthers have a team of riders who go well round the Media Prima Arena, with Ulrich Ostergaard performing well as a guest a couple of weeks ago and Jack Holder is in excellent form and perhaps unlucky not to be named in the Australia side for the world Cup.
Its sure to be a close and exciting meeting, not to be missed!
Redcar: Stuart Robson, Jonas B Andersen, Ben Barker, Ellis Perks, Charles Wright, Coty Garcia, Danny Ayres
Peterborough: Richie Worrall, Bradley Wilson-Dean, Paul Starke, Ulrich Ostergaard, Jack Holder, Liam Carr, Tom Bacon.
