TIGERS v REDCAR, PREVIEW

Sunday September 17, 2017
TABLE topping Sheffield wrap up their regular home league fixtures on Monday when Redcar visit Owlerton (7.45).

The Window Centre Tigers are keen to bounce back from Saturday’s 50-40 defeat at Berwick, by maintaining their unbeaten record on home shale.

Sheffield again operate rider replacement for Todd Kurtz while three-time British Champion Chris Harris comes in for captain Kyle Howarth who is required to ride for Wolverhampton in their Premiership Play-Off Semi-Final at Belle Vue.

Tigers co-promoter Peter Mole said: “We’re expecting a thoroughly entertaining meeting on Monday because Redcar have got a good team.

“They’ve got several all-action, gutsy riders who notoriously ride Owlerton well.

“But we’re delighted to have Josh Grajczonek back at No.1 and Chris Harris will serve up plenty of treats in his rides as guest as well I’m sure.

“It was good to have Josh Bates back from injury at Berwick and it will be good for him to get some laps back under his belt at Owlerton.

“Of course we want another home win to take us into the play-offs but it will certainly be a battle against a determined Redcar side.”

Supporters are politely reminded to note the slightly later start time of 7.45.

SHEFFIELD: Josh Grajczonek, Todd Kurtz R/R, Lasse Bjerre, Josh Bates, Chris Harris, Jan Graversen, Georgie Wood.

REDCAR: Ben Barker, Ellis Perks, Jason Garrity, Jonas B Andersen, Charles Wright, Tobias Busch, Danny Ayres.
