Swales be­moans costly bike prob­lems

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

PAN­THERS co-bosstrevor Swales be­moaned the bike prob­lems that af­fected his side be­fore and dur­ing the meet­ing last night but in­sisted there were plenty of pos­i­tives to come from the dis­play.

Swales, who guided the club to the Elite League ti­tle six years ago, said: “We had a few prob­lems but that is speed­way.

“Rene Bach had prob­lems be­fore the meet­ing and had to change bikes and Olly Allen had elec­tri­cal prob­lems through­out the meet­ing and also had to change bikes.

“Ob­vi­ously a rider’s first bike is the one he wants to be on but I’m not tak­ing any­thing away from Birm­ing­ham who rode well.

“It was a very good meet­ing but we lost the match early on by al­low­ing Birm­ing­ham to open up an eight-point lead.

“When we got back to within two points I was think­ing we could go on and win it but it wasn’t to be.

“It was nice to see Jesper B Mon­berg scor­ing well again and we’re cer­tainly go­ing bet­ter away than we did last sea­son so there are plenty of pos­i­tives.

“We got one point and we’re dis­ap­pointed not to get more but hope­fully we’ll go well again at Lake­side tonight.
