REIGNING Champions Sheffield are preparing for another test on the road as they head to Birmingham on Monday (March 25, 7.30).

It will be the second successive fixture they have faced away to one of the ROWE Motor Oil Premiership’s newcomers having opened at Oxford on Thursday night.

And despite losing out 47-43 at Sandy Lane, Tru7 Group Tigers team boss Simon Stead insists there are plenty of reasons to be hopeful ahead of their trip to Perry Barr.

“I think there were lots and lots of positives that we can focus on after Thursday at Oxford,” Stead said.

“The result might not have been the one we had hoped for, but all considered, I was pleased with a lot of aspects from a lot of the riders and it’s good to have another meeting so quickly.

“I think that now we’ve got one under our belts and blown the cobwebs off, I think we’ll start showing what we’re truly made of as a team.

“Don’t get me wrong it will be a tough place to go to because at the end of the day, it’s their first home meeting back in this league and everyone at Birmingham has been building up to us coming.

“It’s also another place that our heat-leaders won’t have been to for quite a while.

“So I think it will be another good test for us but at the same time I think it’s a good opportunity to get some points on the board.”

Sheffield remain unchanged whilst Birmingham include Czechia international Vaclav Milik and seven-times British Champion Scott Nicholls amongst others.
