PETERBOROUGH have moved to book German superstar Erik Riss for Monday’s big home clash with Belle Vue (7.30).

Former World Long Track Champion Riss steps in for the injured Hans Andersen who remains on the sidelines after a horrifying spill earlier this month.

Crendon Panthers owner Keith Chapman insists the team need to have seven riders in a bid to beat a powerhouse Aces side who include Grand Prix sensation Max Fricke and former Panthers favourite Kenneth Bjerre.

“I firmly believe we need a guest whenever possible and I called Erik to ask for his help,” said Chapman.

“He’s enjoying his racing right now and I’m pretty sure he will enjoy riding the Peterborough track, it’s serving up some great racing right now.

“Erik readily accepted my invite and it’s going to take a massive effort on Monday from everyone – the riders, management and the fans.”
