Comets v Berwick (PL Play-off) Race-day Update
Photo by Dave PayneSun 12 Oct 2014
All is set for another hard-fought contest at Derwent Park this evening in the Comets penultimate home meeting of 2014.
Following the Bandits 48-41 success at Shielfield Park last night the Comets will be going all out to gain revenge this evening by taking all three PL Play-off group points and winning by more than seven points to claim the Border Trophy by way of an aggregate success.
The action gets underway at 7:30pm tonight and the Comets side will be the same as last night with Peterborough's exciting former Comet Ulrich Ostergaard once again riding as a guest at number one in place of collarbone injury victim Josh Grajczonek.
Meanwhile the Bandits welcome their current number one, Matej Kus, back into their line-up after he missed last night's fixture as he was competing in the second (of two) round of the Czech National Championship.
Additionally, the Bandits have called upon the services of former Comet Ritchie Hawkins (now with Ipswich) to take the place of their skipper Matthew Wethers who is understandably feeling very battered and bruised after his heavy fall in heat 12 at Shielfield Park last night.
Despite some overnight rain the Derwent Park circuit is drying out nicely and with a fine sunny day in prospect everything should be perfect for racing at 7:30pm this evening.
