Peterborough Speedway: Dale targets derby success

DALE Allitt hopes to make his unexpected return to the Peterborough hotseat a successful one.

He has agreed to take charge of the 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers on a temporary basis following the departure of team manager Carl Johnson earlier this week.

Allitt will be at the helm for four meetings in the next 10 days - a run which starts with a crucial Premier League Cup trip to East Anglian rivals Ipswich tomorrow night (7.30pm) as Peterborough bit to climb back to the top of the Midland Group standings.

Allitt, who had himself stepped down as co-boss with Johnson last month when being made a promoter at King's Lynn, said: "When it became known I could no longer co-manage at Peterborough, I always said I would help the club out if needed.

"That's exactly what I'm doing now, but not in the circumstances I would have wanted.

"I'd like to publicly wish Carl well for the future. Equally I hope his circumstances change and he can get back involved.

"In the meantime it makes sense for me to step in to fill the void for the four meetings we have coming up as I had a big input in putting the team together over the winter and on deciding the riding order.

"I'm also fully aware of how everyone is performing after seeing all but the club's first meeting at Sheffield so far.

"The guys enjoyed a great win at Scunthorpe on Sunday and we will go to Ipswich with the intention of picking up another result.

"Realistically we need to go there and win, and I believe that is possible."

Peterborough are at full strength for the trip to Suffolk to face a Witches side who are yet to win this season.

They suffered a home defeat at the hands of Scunthorpe before drawing the return clash in this competition.

Ritchie Hawkins' men also lost at Rye House in their Premier League opener, but boast a powerful team spearheaded by former Peterborough man and GB international Danny King.


IPSWICH: Danny King, James Sarjeant, Lewis Kerr, Morten Risager, Nico Covatti, Paco Castagna, Darryl Ritchings.

PETERBOROUGH 'T BALFE CONSTRUCTION' PANTHERS: Ulrich Ostergaard, Simon Lambert, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Michael Palm Toft, Nicklas Porsing, Emil Grondal, Tom Perry.
