Lakeside and Peterborough’s Championship Play-Off semi-final second leg will be restaged tonight after consideration by the British Speedway Promoters’ Association and Speedway Control Bureau.

Following Sunday’s floodlight failure in the meeting between the two and since discussions with Rye House, Lakeside have confirmed this meeting will take place at Hoddesdon.

An agreement has also been reached with Workington that should the Hammers go through to the final, the home leg will be at Rye House on Saturday, October 27 at 7.30pm.

Hammers boss Jon Cook said: “Naturally we have to respect the decision. We can go on apologising for the floodlight failure, which was deeply regrettable and beyond our control.

“We have sought assurances from Rye House regarding Wednesday and the stadium will be ready.

“We urge our fans to get right behind us and cheer on the boys on Wednesday night. There’s still a league title on the line.”

Admission prices are £10 with free race card for those who have re-admissions tickets from Sunday.

Cook added, before any decision was made, that he felt the Hammers could have been awarded the victory despite the abandonment.

“I think there is a chance we could be awarded the victory, but it is more likely that the BSPA will want the meeting replayed.”
