SHEFFIELD Tigers are hopeful of having a full-strength team for their Grand Final 1st Leg showdown with Ipswich at Owlerton on Thursday (7.30).

They secured their place in the Championship’s title decider with a bruising aggregate win over Glasgow.

Tigers, backed by Sheffield Window Centre, are looking for a chunky lead to take to Suffolk for the return on Saturday.

Josh Grajczonek is battered and bruised after a nasty spill in Scotland and is desperate to ride – but club chiefs will make an early check with him on the day.

Josh Bates was in a horror crash and early fears were of a neck injury – but after a trip to hospital it was confirmed nothing is broken and, like Grajczonek, he wants to ride.

Hopes are also high for Lasse Bjerre to race after his spill.

Co-promoter Damien Bates said: “It was a nightmare to be honest and it hardly felt like we’d won through to a Grand Final.

“Thankfully there is no serious damage but with time short ahead of the first leg at Owlerton we need riders who are 100% fit. We will know more in the morning.”
