Polish rider Norbert Kosciuch believes the new-look Peterborough Panthers side can be serious play-off contenders this season.

The 28-year-old Leszno-born is about to embark on his fourth successive season with the Elite League outfit.

Kosciuch told Panthers' official website: "This season's Panthers team has a bit of a new-look about it, but it looks well-balanced with every rider having plenty of potential and if we can avoid injuries I think we'll do very well.

"It won't be easy though as there are some other good-looking line-ups being put together.

"Poole look strong again with Chris Holder, Darcy Ward, Maciej Janowski and Robert Miskowiak, plus I think King's Lynn and Swindon can also do very well.

"In addition to that Lakeside and Eastbourne will always be strong on their own tracks - but they may find it a little harder in win their away meetings.

"If I had to make a prediction I would say in no particular order the top four in the league will be: Peterborough, Poole, King's Lynn and Lakeside.

"On a personal level I'm looking to have my best season yet. 2012 was an improved one for me, but this year I want to step it up another level.

"So that means no setbacks and regular scoring everywhere I ride - whether that is in Britain or Poland, in team or individual meetings."
