SHEFFIELD head to Belle Vue on Monday (April 1, 12 noon) for the first leg of their Premiership Knockout Cup Quarter-Final.

The Tru7 Group Tigers are in high spirits ahead of their trip to Manchester after coming from ten points down to win a Super Heat at Birmingham last Monday.

They will now look to put themselves in a strong position in their War of the Roses cup tie ahead of the return at Owlerton on Thursday (April 4, 7.30).

And team boss Simon Stead is targeting another cup run for the club.

“Since we moved into the Premiership it’s a competition we’ve done well in,” Stead said.

“We won the cup in 2022 and we reached the final last year.

“Before this season got started I spoke about us going one further this campaign - and the only way we can do that is by doing the double.

“So it’s a competition we’re taking very seriously and with our first tie being against our good rivals Belle Vue, it makes us want to win it even more.

“It won’t be easy though and we’re going to need to be right at it from the get-go because they’ve built another solid team this year.

“They’re good around their home track but it can be very different in these daytime meetings.

“We’re feeling good about ourselves though; we’ve ran two late shows in our first two meetings and there have been positives we can bring forward with us.

“So the lads are up for it and we want to put ourselves in the best position possible ahead of our home tie later in the week.”

BELLE VUE: Brady Kurtz, Norick Blodorn, Jaimon Lidsey, Ben Cook, Dan Bewley, Connor Mountain, Connor Bailey.
SHEFFIELD: Jack Holder, Kyle Howarth, Chris Holder, Josh Pickering, Tai Woffinden, Jason Edwards, Dan Gilkes.
