PETERBOROUGH will be looking for their second home win in four days when they host Eastbourne on Bank Holiday Monday (7.30pm).

The Panthers eventually overcome Swindon 51-42 on Friday evening at the East of England Showground, and a similar outcome against the Eagles will further increase their end-of-season play-off aspirations.

Peterborough welcome back Kenneth Bjerre after he missed Friday’s clash against the Robins, and Eastbourne hope to see the return of Matej Zagar who has recently been sidelined with injury.

Panthers team manager Trevor Swales is once again targeting maximum points from the Showground clash. He said: “We had a good win over Swindon on Friday and picked up all three league points.

“After a bit of a break in action we’re now in a busy spell of race meetings, both home and away. It’s important that we keep our focus and not let anything slip at this stage.
