PETERBOROUGH are on a revenge mission when they welcome Belle Vue to the Showground this Monday.

Rob Lyon’s men have been on a fine run of form since their Bank Holiday setback against a powerhouse Aces side.

They drew in Manchester during the day but couldn’t get the job done at home after a catalogue of problems throughout the meeting.

Since then, however, they’ve been on a run of six successive wins to propel themselves to top of the table.

It’s the first of two huge meetings in a week as they travel to Sheffield on Thursday July 22 for an appetising clash in front of the TV cameras.

Said Lyon: “We knew the recent run of home matches were going to be important, and I do feel we were unlucky to lose the first one against Belle Vue.

“They will have their own arguments about that, but we lost four or five points in that meeting through punctures, which would have swung it at least to a draw.

“But the important thing is that we’ve moved on from that and got ourselves on to a good run, which is great.”

Panthers star Hans Andersen made his first appearance at Championship level for Leicester at the weekend and notched a handy eight-points for the Lions.

He said: “My move to Leicester will also help Peterborough because I’m going to be a lot busier now I’m racing for two teams in the UK.

“Hopefully it will see me scoring more points for Peterborough and the team, not just myself, can benefit from that.

“I’m looking forward to being busy for the remainder of the season and hopefully we can win something.”

Jordan Palin impressed with 10-points for Scunthorpe last Friday but then had a tough night for the Scorpions at Leicester and failed to score.

But he’s impressed Lyon so far this season and is tipped for a bright future in the sport.
