Poole Pirates Vs Leicester Lions Play off semi Final1st Leg 13th October

Recommended Posts

Right then. Poole have chosen to take on Leicester Lions in the playoffs even though the quarter finals are yet to be raced. Hmm.

Speedway can really be farcical when situations like this arise.

Let's look at various Senarious. 

1. Scunthorpe sensationally pull back the huge deficit  and progress. Not likely but ?

2. The meeting is called off again due to the weather or no Ambulance cover?

3. Meeting abandoned due to rider's crashing out and withdrawing from the meeting.

This of course is all hypothetical  but again?

Anyway if it is to be the Lions then so be it but they will be a tough nut to crack.

Poole having to stage their leg first isn't ideal  but that's the way it's shaping up unless there is another twist to this drama.

Thoughts.

Potentially two good meetings, between two good sides. Think (And hope) it will be closer than on previous visits this season.

Leicester were doing well at Poole last time til they seemed to collapse half way through the meeting! Any sort of lead over 10 is okay with me, but obviously prefer 14ish if possible!

My initial thought is that its not the k.o.c.1st leg!

secondly the Poole website states its either Leicester or Scunthorpe, so as it stands at the moment I guess Wednesday's matchday programme will have a Poole v Leicester race card but with the opportunity to print off a single sheet insert for Poole v Scunny!

Whoops well spotted Skidder. I have amended the title of the thread..

You are also right of course regarding  the program.

If Andersen is out, which is highly likely, Leicester can have a guest up to 8.36.  Strengthens them.

Scott should probably do it if he fits!

Chris Harris fits for Andersen. That’s one move that would certainly strengthen Leicester

Harris for Andersen. Changes the whole complexion of the tie. Hans is usually good for 5-7 points max at Poole. Harris is good for 12-14.

Is that the Chris Harris that got 8 from 6 rides this season replacing the Hans Anderson that got 9 from 5 and 6 from 3…… hmmm seems that maths isn’t your strong point or checking facts either 

Oh and in 2019 Hans scored 14 from 6 and Harris got 8 twice 

I’m still trying to work out your maths in who scores the best at Poole

You like to get excuses in we know that buys yet again the facts speak for themselves …. Harris for Hans isn’t making them stronger

8.78 for the home leg?

Yes if the 5% is added. Andersen is usually dusty bin around Poole. If he doesn’t gate he rarely passes. Not his favourite track. 

We really should have gone for Edinburgh.

Does Hans know about this Steve, as he always says he looks forward coming back to Poole. Harris didn't do well at Poole with Brum but there were problems with the track then so prob do better. Peterborough may block him from guesting anyway.
