SHEFFIELD face a crucial weekend of racing as they head north in their quest to reach the play-offs.

Tigers sit just outside the Championship play-off places as things stand – but know seven points from their last two fixtures will see them leapfrog Somerset into fourth place.

Simon Stead’s side travel to Edinburgh on Friday (7.30), before heading to Glasgow on Saturday (6.30) knowing they need to produce their two best performances of the season in order to make a late surge into the top four.

Team boss Stead said: “It’s all in our hands, we need to win both meetings and take maximum points from either of the fixtures - it’s as simple as that.

“We all know the job that we’ve got to do - all seven riders will play their part.

“If they all ride as well as we’ve seen on occasions this year then we are in with a fighting chance.

“If we can make the play-offs then we’ll be a really tough team to beat.

“It’s going to be really tough but we’ll give it our best shot.”

It’s a return to Armadale for Aussie Justin Sedgmen who will be keen to prove a point after being released by Edinburgh boss Alex Harkess earlier in the season following a short-term injury.

Skipper Kyle Howarth remains sidelined with a shoulder injury and the club are currently searching for a guest replacement.

EDINBURGH: Sam Masters, James Sarjeant, Josh Pickering, Ricky Wells, Cameron Heeps, William Lawson, Connor Coles.
SHEFFIELD: Danny King, Josh MacDonald, Justin Sedgmen, Todd Kurtz, TBC, Zaine Kennedy, Broc Nicol.
