‘No place to hide’ says Starke

PAUL Starke says there’ll be no place to hide as he returns to face his former side Peterborough today.

Glasgow take on the Panthers at 5pm just two days on from a hard-fought 47-43 victory over the same team at home.

The Panthers welcome Ellis Perks into their ranks as a new signing following a succession of injuries, while there will be a re-run of the superb battles between home No 1 Scott Nicholls and the Tigers’ Chris Harris and Richie Worrall.

Starke and Harris were Peterborough riders last season and won the Fours competition for the club.

That know-how on the fast, wide-open East of England Showground track could be crucial today, says Starke.

“I’d like to think it will play a part,” he said.

“Peterborough are a formidable side on their home track but we do have the knowledge and experience between me and Bomber of how to ride there, and I know Richie is pretty good there as well.

“It’s a proper racetrack – you can’t really hide there. The fastest man wins and I enjoy that. I’m looking forward to going there and hopefully we can put in a big result for the club and get some more points on the board.”

The 27-year-old Englishman is still trying to find his best form in Tigers colours – following up his paid home maximum a week ago with paid seven points on Friday night.

He said: “I started on fire then I had the crash and the injuries, then came good last week.

“It will come good for the team – and I just want to bring some trophies to the club now because they deserve some trophies. I hope the bunch of lads we’ve got can do that for them.”
