Plymouth Devils prepare for four meets in four days

IMG_6948PLYMOUTH Devils face a hectic period at the end of the week with four meetings in the space of four days.

The Devils are away to Sheffield in their first Premier League fixture of the season on Thursday evening.

They follow that with a home match against Peterborough in the League Cup on Friday evening and then take on two successive away League Cup matches at Rye House on Saturday and Peterborough on Sunday.

Peterborough have been hit by early season injuries to Oliver Allen and former Plymouth rider Adam Roynon, but Devils co-promoter Ashley Taylor says the Panthers still promise to be potent opposition.

“As far as I am concerned, there are no easy matches in the Premier League and we are in a strong League Cup group,” said Taylor.

“Despite their injury problems, Peterborough still look to have a useful side with the likes of Ulrich Ostergaard, always a popular visitor to the St Boniface Arena, and talented 17-year-old Robert Lambert while former Plymouth rider Michael Palm Toft is the short-term replacement for Roynon.”

Plymouth will be without skipper Kyle Newman, who is due to race for his Elite League club Poole at Coventry on Friday evening.
