Machin says Tigers need to feel the noise

Have your say

TIGERS owner Neil Machin is calling for a massive team effort when they face unbeaten Glasgow at Owlerton tonight (7.45).

The Scottish side arrive with three wins after starting the season late because of track work at their Ashfield home.

And they sent a message to the rest of the Premier League with a fine win at Newcastle in front of the Sky cameras on Monday.

Said Machin: “Glasgow have improved their record around here in recent seasons and they are no longer beaten before they get here.

“They’ve already proved what a fine side they are and we are looking forward to what should be a fine meeting between the two teams.

“It will take a massive team effort from us to win by more than six points on the night and claim all three league points available to us.

“There are some riders in the team who know they have to do better than they have been doing and I’m sure they will all step up to the plate.

“We need the fans to make the noise which will make a difference to our riders.”

Tigers are unchanged from the side that faced Ipswich twice in two days last week. Glasgow name the same team which won at Newcastle.

It means a rare Owlerton appearance for Chesterfield-born Joe Screen, who moved to Scotland after spending 20-years in the Elite League.

Screen has 21 Grand Prix appearances and will relish his battles with Tigers’ Shane Parker.

James Grieves, often the subject of stick from Sheffield fans, has also improved his performances at Owlerton in recent times. And in Nick Morris Glasgow have one of the brightest 16-year-old prospects in the sport at reserve. The teams -

SHEFFIELD: Shane Parker, Emiliano Sanchez, Josh Auty, Hugh Skidmore, Ricky Ashworth, Simon Lambert, Ashley Birks.

GLASGOW: Joe Screen, Theo Pijper, Christian Henry, James Grieves, Josh Grajczonek, Nick Morris, Michal Rajkowski.
