CHRIS Holder insists Sheffield will be going all-out attack in their Sports Insure Premiership play-off semi-final decider against Wolverhampton at Owlerton tonight (Thursday, September 28, 7.30).

The Tru Plant Tigers have put themselves in a strong position having won their away leg by ten points in the West Midlands on Monday.

Holder has acknowledged the strength of their opponents though and the 2012 World Champion says he and his team-mates will need to approach the fixture in their usual determined and focussed manner which has seen Sheffield record a nine fixture winning streak in all competitions.

“To finish in front by ten on Monday was great – but they could quite easily come to us and do exactly the same thing,” Holder said.

“So it’s definitely not over and we have to go into it like it’s any other match.

“We want to get off to a good start in the first few and then hopefully keep the ball rolling after that.

“We will be going for the win, we won’t be going out there trying to protect anything, we will be trying to put as many points on the board as we can.

“We definitely can’t be complacent because Wolves are a solid team all the way through.

"But hopefully our home comforts will help us get into them early; we’ve put ourselves in as good a position as we could’ve done – so now it’s up to us boys to go out there and finish it off.”

An exclusive interview with Holder can be read in tonight’s ‘Tiger Talk’ racenight programme, available for £3 trackside.

Sheffield Speedway would like to remind supporters that season tickets are NOT valid for tonight’s fixture.

Children aged 17 and under will be admitted for just £1 with adult admission set at £22 while it’s £20 for concessions.
