TIGERS v SCUNTHORPE, PREVIEW

Wednesday August 23, 2017
SHEFFIELD skipper Kyle Howarth insists they will keep their foot on the gas as they look to continue their winning run against Scunthorpe on Thursday (7.30).

The Window Centre Tigers have won 10 straight matches to storm to the top of the SGB Championship table.

And they will be firm favourites as they host their struggling local rivals at Owlerton aiming to continue their fine form.

Howarth is confident they will emerge with three more points but knows they must keep their concentration.

Said Howarth: “Even though we’re top of the league and winning meetings, we’ve still got to stay focused and make sure we’re still at our best.

“Every point is important if we want to finish top of the league, so we need to put in another good performance to get three more points on Thursday.

“We’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing, keep learning when we make mistakes and hopefully keep on winning.”

Sheffield will be at full strength whilst Scunthorpe operate rider replacement for the injured Jake Allen.

SHEFFIELD: Josh Grajczonek, Todd Kurtz, Lasse Bjerre, Josh Bates, Kyle Howarth, Jan Graversen, Georgie Wood.

SCUNTHORPE: Michael Palm Toft, Jake Allen R/R, Lewis Kerr, Ryan Douglas, Josh Auty, Tero Aarnio, Josh Bailey.
