The city side will also operate the rider replacement facility.

Lasse Bjerre fills in at number one for the unavailable Jack Holder again. Holder’s World Under 21 Championship qualifier in Italy was rained off yesterday (May 20) and will now be staged today.

Panthers bosses have snapped up in-form Berwick man Dany Gappmaier to deputise for the injured Simon Lambert. Gappmaier scored 13+1 against them last night for his regular club in a meeting which saw Simon Lambert break his left hand.
