Sheffield reserve Arthur Sissis believes their rain-off frustration can play to their advantage in their Premier League Play-Off Semi-Final clash with Glasgow.

The Window Centre Tigers saw the first leg at Owlerton postponed last night after heavy rainfall less than an hour before the action was due to get underway.

They will now travel to Ashfield on Sunday before hosting the second leg on home shale - and Sissis believes the scenario could prove beneficial.

Having put in some strong showings at Glasgow in the past, the Aussie ace is keen to play a big role for the injury-hit Tigers to put them in a strong position.

Said Sissis: “It was frustrating to have the meeting called off so late, but I think it might work out quite well for us.

“It means we can go into the home leg knowing where we stand and what we have to do to get through.

“It’ll be a tough meeting at Glasgow on Sunday but hopefully we can all do our bit to keep it close and give ourselves a good chance to make it through.

“Glasgow is my favourite track that we go to, so I’m looking forward to Sunday now.

“I’ve had some pretty good meetings there and it’s a track that suits me. Hopefully I can put in another good performance there on Sunday to help the team out.

“We have a fair few injuries which is a shame, but we all need to step things up and do our bit over the two legs I guess.”
