Peterborough Panthers clash against fellow Premier League title-chasers Somerset today (August 31) has predictably fallen victim to the wet weather.

Club chiefs have called off the 3pm clash due to a waterlogged East of England Showground track, but a re-staging date has already been confirmed.

The meeting between the teams currently fifth and second in the table will take place on Saturday (September 5, 7pm).

Promoter Ged Rathbone said: “We thank our Showground landlords and the Somerset promotion for agreeing to a new date so quickly.

“Saturday night speedway is something new and hopefully fans will turn out in force for what should be a cracker of a meeting.”
