Poole Pirates can expect tough challenge against Peterborough Panthers
POOLE Pirates boss Matt Ford is pushing his side to keep up their good form when they face the dangerous Peterborough Panthers on Wednesday night.
The Pirates have been in fine form of late as they try to claim an Elite League playoff place - seemingly putting a dreadful start to the season behind them.
The Panthers are also performing well, having picked up points in every meeting since July 12. Ford is warning the Pirates to expect a tough meeting on Wednesday at Wimborne Road.
"A month or so ago, I think we might have fancied our chances of a comfortable win over Peterborough - but they have really hit some form of late, even going to playoff seeking Swindon and winning" explained Ford.

"They are now on the crest of a wave having put together a successful run and we all know what that can do for confidence.
"We are going to have to continue what we have been doing in recent weeks here and ensure we are picking up race points from our number one down to our number seven.
"I have no doubt that our lads have the ability and desire to do just that, but it would be wrong for us to believe that this is going to be easy."
Kyle Howarth could feature for the Pirates as Josh Grajczonek is likely to ride for Premier League side, the Somerset Rebels.
