Peterborough have provisionally agreed two new fixture dates with East Anglian rivals Ipswich.

The two clubs’ clash in the League Cup Midland Group will now take place at the East of England Showground on Sunday, May 22 - replacing a previously scheduled league fixture against the Witches on that date.

The league contest has been shifted to Bank Holiday Monday, May 30 with an 8pm start time due to some riders having earlier engagements in the day.

The T Balfe Construction Panthers had been due to face Plymouth on that date, but the Devils announced earlier this week they have closed due to mounting debts.

Both fixture changes are subject to British Speedway Promoters’ Association (BSPA) approval.
