Panthers hoping for track time . . . at last

PETERBOROUGH will be hoping to finally get some track time when they host Swindon at the East of England Showground on Friday evening (7.30pm).

PETERBOROUGH will be hoping to finally get some track time when they host Swindon at the East of England Showground on Friday evening (7.30pm).

The Readypower Panthers have been left frustrated by a period of inactivity after suffering two rain-offs in the past few days. Monday’s home match against Coventry and Thursday’s trip to Ipswich have both fallen victim to the weather this week.

The Robins arrive at the Showground eager for points after a bad run of results has seen them slip towards the foot of the Elite League table, but Panthers team boss Trevor Swales has targeted the clash against the Wiltshire side as a ‘must-win’ match for his team.

Swales said: “The play-offs will soon be with us and we have to make sure we qualify for them. We are looking okay at the moment, but we must ensure there are no slip-ups in our remaining home meetings.

“If we take maximum league points from our home matches then we are guaranteed a play-off place and that’s what we will be looking to do – starting against Swindon on Friday.

“This is a meeting we simply have to win.”
