SHEFFIELD boss Simon Stead admitted he was “disappointed” to miss out on glory on the road again.

The Owlerton side went down 50-40 at Scunthorpe after a mid-meeting blip cost them a chance of any points.
The Sheffield Windows Tigers held it close in the early stages but the Scorpions just had too much firepower and strength in depth.
Stead said: “We are obviously disappointed. It seems to be the same part of each meeting that lets us down.
“However we remain positive. We have some inexperienced lads in the side that will need time to settle away from home.
“They all have so much potential and will come good. They just need to keep working hard and enjoying racing, that’s the most important thing.
“The results will come from them. We know where we are losing meetings right now and we need to try and sort that as soon as possible.
“We now go to Leicester tomorrow night (Saturday) and that’s going to possibly be our toughest test yet. The boys will keep fighting.”
It was a solid performance from the Scorpions which left Sheffield little opportunity to mount a serious challenge.
Danny Ayres took a shock win in Heat 1 over Danny King and after Scunny took a Heat 2 5-1, the visitors were always chasing.
The Tigers did briefly draw level after Heat 4 thanks to wins from Ty Proctor and Kyle Howarth, but home maximums in Heat 9 and 10 left Sheffield reeling.
An epic Heat 14 finally ended any hopes for the Tigers. Scunthorpe’s Ryan Kinsley passing Kennedy before a thrilling finish with Proctor, the Sheffield Australian just getting the verdict. But the 4-2 to Scunny put them in control of all the points.
Howarth rounded off the evening with a win to underline his excellent top scoring performance of 13 points.

SCUNTHORPE 50: Jason Garrity 10+1, Josh Auty 10, Stefan Nielsen 8+1, Jake Allen 7, Danny Ayres 6+2, Josh Bailey 5+1, Ryan Kinsley 4
SHEFFIELD 40: Kyle Howarth 13, Danny King 8+1, Ty Proctor 8, Zaine Kennedy 5, Kasper Andersen 3+2, Drew Kemp 2+2, Broc Nicol 1
