Plymouth Devils back at full strength for trip to Peterborough

Devils arenaPLYMOUTH Devils will be at full strength for their Premier League visit to Peterborough on Tuesday evening.

Jack Holder will return to the side after missing Saturday’s home win over Edinburgh because he was competing in the first round of the World Under-21 championship at King’s Lynn.

The young Australian finished third behind Robert Lambert and Krystian Pieszczek in the qualifying heats with 12 points from his five rides. That took him through to the semi-finals but he missed out on the final after finishing third behind Pieszczek and Max Fricke.

Overall, Holder is in third place after the first round of the three-round series.

His return to the Devils side means they will be at full strength with their current one to seven for the first time in an away match this season.

Team manager Lee Trigger said: “If all seven ride to their full potential, we will be optimistic of coming away with something from Peterborough and start getting some points on the board away from home.”

Plymouth have two more matches this week with a home clash against Ipswich on Friday evening followed by a visit to Rye House on Saturday.

Trigger said: “Ipswich will be another tough match for us. They have got Ben Barker back in their team and he can be a thorn in our side along with the new British Champion Danny King and Morten Risager, who rode for us last season.”

Peterborough: Craig Cook, rider replacement for Tom Perry, Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Emil Grondal, Ulrich Ostergaard. Reserves: Simon Lambert, Zdenek Holub.

Plymouth: Brady Kurtz, Todd Kurtz, Sam Simota, Kyle Newman, Jack Holder. Reserves: Stefan Nielsen, Ellis Perks.
