IPSWICH ride at Peterborough in the Elite League tomorrow night with both sides below full strength because of the World Cup.

Ipswich will be without Scott Nicholls and Jarek Hampel, the latter deemed to be in the Polish party although not in their squad, while the Panthers have Ryan Sullivan, Piotr Protasiewicz, Hans Andersen and Gary Havelock missing while Kenneth Bjerre is another rider who is in their squad but included in the World Cup.

The Witches will use rider replacement at one, with Freddie Eriksson, Craig Boyce, Daniel Nermark, Steve Johnston, guesting for Nicholls, Danny Bird and Kim Jansson making up the line-up.

Peterborough, meanwhile, have rider replacement at one, Chris Harris at two, Simon Stead, Paul Fry, Joe Screen guest at five, Shane Parker and Nigel Sadler making up their side – with only Screen not riding in the Premier League this season.

On Thursday, the Witches entertain Rye House at Foxhall in the British League Cup.
