Weak­ened Pan­thers put up a bat­tling dis­play

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sports -

SPEED­WAY: Pan­thers were de­feated but not dis­graced in the first of two suc­ces­sive away meet­ings last night.

A de­pleted city team - with­out in­jured Olly Allen and the ill Michael Jepsen Jensen - went down 50-39 at Poole.

Co-boss Jan Staech­mann said: “I don’t think the final score­line ac­tu­ally re­flected how well we rode un­der the cir­cum­stances.”

But things will hardly get any eas­ier tonight when Pan­thers travel to a highly-touted Swin­don team with Jepsen Jensen and Allen both al­ready ruled out. The club were still chas­ing a guest rider this morn­ing and will again use the rider re­place­ment fa­cil­ity.
