Bjerre misses the SGB Premiership clash, which is being screened live by BT Sport, after suffering a shoulder injury in a crash while riding for Newcastle in the second tier yesterday.

Panthers will operate rider replacement for Bjerre as they bid to collect a first away victory of 2019.

Captain Hans Andersen takes over as number one and Bradley Wilson-Dean drops to reserve following the introduction of new averages. Both of those men are former title-winners with Swindon.
