Peterborough are chasing their first League Cup points of the season when they face Plymouth at the Showground on Tuesday (7.30pm).

The TC Harrison Panthers slipped to an opening-night defeat at the hands of Rye House last week, but confidence has been boosted by Saturday’s impressive challenge match win at Elite League club Leicester.

And now they know they need to show their full potential at home, against a Plymouth team heavily modified from last season.

The Devils include a mixture of new and familiar faces, led by Great Britain international Ben Barker who has raced at the Showground for Coventry and Birmingham in recent years.

The visitors’ middle-order contains Sam Simota, who rode for Panthers at the start of the 2008 season, and Kyle Newman who had a spell as a doubling-up rider in 2012.
