SHEFFIELD were unable to continue their recent good form as they fell to a 55-35 defeat at Wolverhampton.

It was just their third loss in their last 11 Sports Insure Premiership outings on a night where the hosts rose to the occasion as they booked their place in the play-offs.

The Tru Plant Tigers still have work to do to secure their spot in the top four but with 2012 World Champion Chris Holder and experienced Dane Claus Vissing coming into the side from Thursday’s (August 31, 7.30) home clash with King’s Lynn, they’ll be back at full strength having been without injured outgoing pairing Adam Ellis and Lewis Kerr for Monday’s fixture in the West Midlands.

Sheffield only managed three race winners against a determined Wolves side who remain unbeaten at home and Simon Stead’s men will be keen to look ahead with three regular league fixtures remaining.

WOLVERHAMPTON 55: Ryan Douglas 12+3, Luke Becker 11+1, Rory Schlein 9+1, Steve Worrall 8, Sam Masters 6+1, Zach Cook 6, Leon Flint 3+1.
SHEFFIELD 35: Tai Woffinden 9+1, Josh Pickering 7+2, Kyle Howarth 7, Kyle Newman 6+1, Tobiasz Musielak 5+2, Jason Edwards 1, Adam Ellis r/r.
