Who sits out for Sheffield Steelers tonight?

Paul Thompson had bad news for two established Sheffield Steelers forwards tonight.

Tim Wallace

The coach, forced to drop two imports from his match-day squad in the Play Off semi final first leg, chose Tim Wallace and Matt Marquardt for the axe.

Neither have been dropped before, this season - so it must have been a blow for the pair.

Marquardt scored three points in his last game, at Manchester Storm, so he must have thought he was in with a good shout of playing against Guildford Flames.

Wallace has been a solid performer this season, but his points tally has been disappointing.

Both were also the victim of John Armstrong's return to the team, last weekend after 25 games out with a hand injury.

*Zack Fitzgerald and the now-departed Brady Ramsay have previously been dropped, this season.
