MIKE BACON looks back at the Witches latest win over Peterborough Panthers at Foxhall on Thursday night
HIT TEAMS FROM THE OFF
The Witches seem to have lost that early grunt that was seeing them take charge of meetings, home and away earlier in the season.
Even against a patched-up Panthers side, the Witches failed to impose themselves from the off.
In the end of course it didn't matter as the Witches got their act together mid-meeting. But getting off to a good start would make life easier.

Peterborough's side was seemingly changing by the hour during Thursday as they struggled to cope with injuries and breakdowns!
It left most Witches fans thinking it would be a doddle to see off their understrength opponents.
That's never healthy for a side when their fans think they will win easily. And so it proved. The Witches did well in the end. But anything less than a decent win would have been frowned upon.
PLAY-OFFS ALMOST THERE
The Witches really do have one foot firmly in the play-offs, but their recent form hasn't been convincing.
They have the chance now to make a statement with two meetings home and away against fellow title challengers Poole and Swindon in the weeks ahead.
Imagine how good that would be if the Witches gained good victories over both those sides?
It was another good crowd and some decent racing at Foxhall.
The fans really have got behind this team and wouldn't it be wonderful if Ipswich could achieve their ultimate goal of Premiership glory.
Certainly Ipswich Witches as a club are thriving again.
Bank Holiday action for the Witches at in-form Swindon on Monday night, before Poole come to Foxhall next Thursday in another big Premiership clash.
What an exciting season 2019 has turned out to be for Ipswich Speedway.
