Peterborough blow ahead of Swindon clash

PETERBOROUGH have been dealt a double injury blow ahead of tonight’s Elite League home clash with Swindon.

PETERBOROUGH have been dealt a double injury blow ahead of tonight’s Elite League home clash with Swindon.

New signing Tomas H. Jonasson and Polish sensation Krzysztof Buczkowski have both been ruled out of the fixture against the Robins after crashing in Poland on Sunday.

They were competing in the Gdansk v Bydgoszcz Extra League match where Jonasson was taken from the track to hospital, whilst Buczkowski finished the meeting but later complained of pain in his back.

Buczkowski is thought to be just battered and bruised and Jonasson also looks to have escaped serious injury with no broken bones reported. The Swede, however, has been advised to take a week’s rest and Buczkowski will also need a few days to recover.

Because Jonasson has yet to turn a wheel for the club the rules state that no facility is available and the only option would be to book a rider with a Premier League average of 6.00 or less.

As a result Panthers will revert back to the original line-up that included Olly Allen. This also sees Norbert Kosciuch moving back to the reserve berth to face the Robins, rider-replacement now being operated for Buczkowski and Plymouth’s Ryan Fisher being booked as guest to replace Allen.
