PLAY-OFF DETAILS CONFIRMED

Monday September 18, 2017
SHEFFIELD have selected Glasgow as their Championship Play-Off Semi-Final opponents – and the first leg takes place at Owlerton this Thursday (September 21, 7.30).

The Window Centre Tigers have opted to race their home leg first in the hope of building up a healthy lead ahead of the second leg which will take place at Glasgow’s Peugeot Ashfield Stadium on Tuesday, September 26.

Sheffield promoter Damien Bates said: “When the play-offs get underway, the whole season starts again and everything you’ve done beforehand counts for nothing.

“Glasgow have been hit by a fair few injuries of late and their results have suffered as a consequence.

“But their form doesn’t mean a thing and despite some of their recent results, we definitely won’t be taking anything for granted over the two legs.

“We want to be on the front foot and hit them hard early on at Owlerton this Thursday and it’s important we build up as a big a lead as we possibly can.

“It’s certainly going to be a tense but exciting couple of meetings and fingers crossed the team can just ride how we know they’re capable of.”

It means the second Semi-Final sees Ipswich taking on Edinburgh.
