Ipswich Witches’ clash at Peterborough tomorrow night is off.

Peterborough bosses have taken an early decision to postpone the clash, the club have acted on of the advice of several weather forecasts, which all indicate that persistent rain is expected during the afternoon and evening.

They have therefore called the meeting off to prevent inconvenience for all parties.

A new date for the match, which is still a significant one for the Panthers, is to be confirmed.
