SHEFFIELD Tigers are expecting one of the biggest nights of the season when title rivals Glasgow visit Owlerton tonight (7.30).

Boss Damien Bates says it will be a big test for his side in a classic first v third showdown.

“Whenever Glasgow are in town, they give us a real test, and I expect tonight to be no different.

“But it’s no fluke that we are top of the table and they are third. We have two good teams here who could meet in the play-offs at the end of the season.

“We know we have an opportunity to lay down a marker for the title. We know how hard it will be but, with the backing of our fans, we know we have the opportunity to underline our strength if we can beat them.

“It’s one of the biggest nights of the season and we are hoping to see a big crowd getting right behind the lads.”

Sheffield are without Todd Kurtz with a hand injury and the sides will meet again in the return fixture in Scotland on Saturday.
