SHEFFIELD are preparing themselves for a bumper weekend double against Glasgow.

The Tigers head to Scotland on Friday (7.30) before hosting the in-form side at Owlerton on Sunday (5.30).

Sheffield go into the clashes with fitness concerns over skipper Kyle Howarth who stretched ligaments in his final ride in the defeat at Redcar on Tuesday.

The former British Under-21 Champion will miss the trip to Scotland but is hoping to get back on the bike in Sunday’s home clash.

Meanwhile the Scottish outfit have been boosted by the news that Great Britain star Craig Cook will be able to take his place.

The Glasgow skipper has appealed the 12-day ban handed to him by the Speedway Control Bureau and has been given permission to race while the matter is review.
With Sheffield still hunting down the Championship’s top four, it promises to be another important weekend for the Steel City side.

Co-promoter Damien Bates said: “Glasgow have clearly developed into the team to beat this season and are strong from top-to-tail.

“Their boys will be hard to beat as they try and cement top spot in the Championship ahead of the play-offs.

“But we’ve still got play-off ambitions of our own and we know we need to add some league points to our tally again this weekend.”

GLASGOW: Craig Cook, Mikkel B Andersen, Claus Vissing R/R, Sam Jensen, Rasmus Jensen, Kyle Bickley, Connor Bailey.
SHEFFIELD: Danny King, Drew Kemp, Justin Sedgmen, Todd Kurtz, Kyle Howarth R/R, Zaine Kennedy, Josh MacDonald.
