PETERBOROUGH completes their season with a daunting Midland League trip to Monmore Green on Monday night to face the Elite League Champions Wolverhampton.

Having lost at home to the Wolves on the 8th October the Panthers appear to be second favourites to clinch this year's Midland Championship but are intending to do their best and improve on this years previous two league results there.

The Panthers problems don't just end there however as although Wolverhampton are at full strength the Panthers are missing Kenneth. Bjerre, Ales Dryml and the recently injured Henning Bager.

Bjerre is due to have a full medical check on the leg he broke last year whilst Dryml is also committed with medical checks in the Czech Republic.

Panthers will again use Troy Batchelor to replace Bjerre, the young Aussie impressed the management the last time he rode for the Panthers at Coventry and have brought Lakeside,s Stuart Robson in to ride at reserve in place of Bager.

Rider replacement will be used to cover for the missing Ales Dryml but Kenneth Hansen and Claus Vissing are back from their USA trip and are included in the Panthers 1 to 7.

Team Manager Trevor Swales said: "Whilst this is our final meeting for 2009 it is still a meeting that we will be trying very hard to win. We accept that the odds are against us facing the 2009 league champions who have not lost at home this season and indeed only dropped 1 point in there home meetings we will endeavour to win this competition, It would be great to finish the season with a big win and this is our final chance to reward the supporters for there loyalty to us Whilst there will be no pressure on us as many expect the result to go in Wolves direction,it`s up to us to turn the form book upside down. Nothing less than a win will be good enough as we lost the home leg in a meeting that ended at heat 12 with the loss of Henning for the rest of the season. We all wish Henning a full and quick recovery." :

Owner Rick Frost said: "This is our last meeting of the season and what better opponents than the 2009 champions to end our season. We need the four points to win the Midland League and why not .Surely they must all be tired out by now from their recent exertions! Anyway a safe evenings racing to all the riders and a well earned rest until next season. A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all”.
