PLAY-OFF HOME LEG THIS MONDAY

Wednesday September 22, 2021
WOLVERHAMPTON will stage the home leg of their play-off semi-final this coming Monday, September 27 (7.30).

And in a dramatic twist they will face Peterborough on a clash of the top two after both clubs revealed they would pick the other regardless of who finishes top.

Peterborough still have one meeting to race at home on Thursday against King’s Lynn and a win sees them top the table.

Any other outcome sees Parrys International Wolves finish top – but either way the duo were always heading for a semi-final collision course as the race for the title hots up.

Wolverhampton promoter Chris Van Straaten said: “It came as a surprise when the four clubs got together in a planning meeting for the play-offs to discover that Peterborough would pick us and we would pick them.

“It is, therefore, prudent to make the play-off dates known in order for fans, riders, staff and stadium personnel to ensure they have the maximum amount of time to prepare for what will be two huge meetings for both clubs.

“As is tradition, we would want the first leg to try and build a lead to defend for the following week at Peterborough and I expect two fantastic meetings.”

The second leg will be at the East of England Showground on Monday week, October 4.

Tickets for this Monday are available in advance from the link on the Wolverhampton speedway website.
