The Hammers play off hopes decided on Wednesday

Lakeside Hammers Play Off hopes will go to the last night of the regular season after Belle Vue’s stunning defeat of Peterborough on Monday night. The Panthers will need to at least draw at Coventry on Wednesday if they are to take fourth place from the Essex based club.

The Hammers Co Promoter Jon Cook commented shortly after Monday’s matches, which also saw Poole gain an away win at Birmingham, saying:  “When all said and done it’s a huge achievement for the team to have come through this terrible season and still have a realistic chance of making the top four. Although we can only sit and wait it does make for a very exciting few days for our Club and the fans.”
