SHEFFIELD head to Ipswich on Thursday (September 14, 7.30) for the deciding leg of the 2023 Premiership Knockout Cup Final.

The Tru Plant Tigers hold a six point lead following their 48-42 victory in South Yorkshire on Monday.

And while team boss Simon Stead would’ve felt more comfortable travelling with a bigger advantage, he is backing his riders to get the job done and defend their top-flight cup trophy.

“We know it’s going to be tough, but we’re far from giving up and throwing in the towel.

“At the end of the day we’ve got a lead, it is what it is and six points is six points.

“It’s still all to play for and it’s game on as far as we’re concerned!”

Sheffield will arrive at Foxhall with the same seven riders who contested Monday’s home leg, with Max Fricke and Kyle Newman handed further opportunities as guests.

IPSWICH: Emil Sayfutdinov, Danyon Hume, Danny King, Erik Riss, Jason Doyle, Keynan Rew, Joe Thompson.
SHEFFIELD: Max Fricke, Kyle Howarth, Chris Holder, Josh Pickering, Tobiasz Musielak, Kyle Newman, Jason Edwards.
