NORBERT Kosciuch has boosted Peterborough’s Knock Out Cup bid.

NORBERT Kosciuch has boosted Peterborough’s Knock Out Cup bid.

The in-form Poland star was originally likely to miss the home leg of the semi final against double-chasing Poole because of a Swedish AllSvenskan League clash of fixtures.

Norbi scored a five ride paid maximum as Ornarna won 54-42 away to Masarna in the first leg of the promotion play-off semi final on Thursday night.

The second leg is tonight (October 1) and provided there are no slip-ups Ornarna will take on the winners of the Hammarby-Griparna tie in the two leg final.

Club owner Rick Frost said: “We didn’t put any pressure on Norbi because he signed for his Swedish club at the beginning of the season and only came to us at the end of June.

“At a time when so many Polish riders seem to miss meetings in this country for the flimsiest of excuses it says an awful lot for Norbi’s dedication to Peterborough that he has agreed to help us try and get into the Cup Final.

“That is the sort of attitude you want from riders and all we hope now is that we can go on and win the Knock Out Cup and Ornarna get promotion to the Swedish ElitSerien.”

Team manager Trevor Swales added: “It’s typical of the loyalty Norbi has shown since he joined us. It’s never easy when you sign for a club midway through the season because you already have a lot of commitments.”
