HIT THE ROAD, JACK!

Wednesday July 05, 2017
JACK Holder is determined to continue his high scoring as Peterborough hit the road in search of more SGB Championship success.

The Australian star has enjoyed a stunning run of form in recent weeks for the 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers.

Holder has roared to three maximums (two full and one paid) during his last six home meetings - a run in which he has only been beaten by an opponent on three occasions.

The 21 year-old also hit double-figures in the club's last away meeting when they were beaten at Sheffield a fortnight ago - and he is targeting more big numbers when Peterborough go to Redcar tomorrow (Thursday, 7.30pm) ahead of a Saturday trip to Glasgow (7pm).

They are two clashes which could prove crucial in Panthers' play-off chase with Redcar currently sitting fourth in the standings and Glasgow up in second.

Holder said: "I'm loving being on my bike and enjoying every minute of it at Peterborough.

"I didn't have anywhere near enough meetings in the last two years, but racing in two leagues is really paying off for me.

"My engines are working great, the bikes are feeling good and I've got a lot of top people around me. I do my bit out on the track by scoring points and winning races.

"Our form has been good at home lately and I think all the boys need a bit more credit for that, but we now need to back it up on the road with more results.

"We seem to start away meetings slowly and then get going a bit too late so it's important we gel together as a team and be on it from the first heat.

"Redcar is a track I like and a place we do well at, but Glasgow is not somewhere I've done too well in the past.

"I don't think I've ever been in front there before, but it's a new meeting and a new year, and hopefully I can get some fresh air on Saturday.

"We don't go anywhere to lose and we'll go into both meetings believing we can with them."

Peterborough have turned to former Redcar man Richie Worrall to guest at number one tomorrow night. He will then race against Panthers 48 hours later for regular club Glasgow.

Meanwhile current Redcar rider Ben Barker will go from being an opponent tomorrow to a Peterborough stand-in on Saturday, when he fills the number one berth at Glasgow.

Redcar are also without their own top rider tomorrow as Jason Garrity is injured. They have called on Stuart Robson to guest.

TEAMS
REDCAR: Stuart Robson (guest), Jonas B. Andersen, Ben Barker, Ellis Perks, Charles Wright, Coty Garcia, Danny Ayres.

PETERBOROUGH: Richie Worrall (guest), Bradley Wilson-Dean, Paul Starke, Ulrich Ostergaard, Jack Holder, Liam Carr, Tom Bacon.
