The Aussie ace banged in a 15-point maximum against the Heathens in 2015, which sent him on his way to a crucial, impressive run of form for the Tigers before being ruled out through injury.

After making a steady return to British racing in recent weeks Sissis insists he is now ready to push on and help Sheffield reach the play-offs once again.

“I want another max against Cradley and hopefully it will have the same affect as it did last year,” said Sissis.

“It gave me so much confidence and belief and I was in the form of my life up until I got injured.

“To say I haven’t been able to get on a bike that much in nine months or so, I’m pretty satisfied with how things have gone for Sheffield so far.

“I know I’ve got more to give to the team though and it will be some important track time against Cradley.

“I know they’ve got some strong riders at the top end of their team, so it should be a good test but I’m looking to put in a good performance and get my confidence rolling again.

“The team have been going good again of late and we want to make sure we get into those play-offs.”

Sheffield have reduced admission for tomorrow’s meeting at Owlerton with Adults being admitted for £12 and concessions £10.

Season tickets will not be valid, however holders will receive a free programme and half price parking.

Any profits from the meeting will be put towards a new training track as well as current track maintenance.
