PANTHERS UP FOR CHALLENGE

Although without injured Czech, Ales Dryml, Peterborough look likely to present one of the sternest tests to Scotwaste Monarchs unbeaten record at Armadale this evening.

The Panthers came very close to winning at Redcar last night and that was without Dryml and with losing Lasse Bjerre in his second race. It was a four point defeat there and that was controversial, at least in the eyes of the Panthers, as Lewis Blackbird was excluded in the deciding final heat. That cost the Panthers the chance of victory. Ryan Fisher also scored only five and he can expect to get more than that at Armadale where his average is very similar to Craig Cook's.

Lasse Bjerre will be in the Panthers team on Friday night as he was keen to continue on Thursday but was overruled in that view by the medical staff.

With the weather fine at Armadale and with no World Cup football tonight a big crowd is expected to welcome back the Fish to Armadale.
