Ty Proctor is hoping to be fully fit for tomorrow’s trip to Glasgow.

The Sheffield racer, who notched 10+1 in Thursday’s win over Newcastle, suffered a fall in his last outing which left him feeling battered and bruised.

Tigers are looking to build on the impressive win over the Diamonds when they head to Scotland with more important Premier League points available.

Said Proctor: “We are up at Glasgow tomorrow which will be tough, but we’ve got to go there aiming for at least a point and if we all perform hopefully we can get something.

“It was a really good night for me against Newcastle until I stuffed myself in the fence in heat 15 which has left me feeling the effects a bit.

“Before that I felt like I had a lot of speed and I was making good starts, so there were a lot of positives for me personally.

“Fingers crossed I’m feeling better by tomorrow and I can have another good meeting. I need to find some consistency and really start moving forwards over the rest of the season.”

Proctor says it was teamwork which helped Sheffield to victory on Thursday.

He said: “From a team perspective it was an amazing win, and it was a great performance where everyone played their part to make sure we got all three points.

“It’s been a tough start to the season where we haven’t really had as many meetings as we would have liked for various reasons.

“We always knew as a team we had it in us, we just needed everyone to click.

“Even with Steady suffering bike problems we still won by ten points against a strong team which just shows what we are really capable of.

“We need to start trying to find some consistency now and start moving up the table over the rest of the season.”

Tigers are hopeful of having teenage ace Josh Bates back in the side after missing Thursday with shoulder, back and hand injuries sustained in the Elite League with Leicester.

GLASGOW: Kevin Wolbert, Theo Pijper, Christian Henry, Anders Thomsen, Rusty Harrison, Kasper Lykke Nielsen, Tom Perry.

SHEFFIELD: Simon Stead, Ben Wilson, Leigh Lanham, Andre Compton, Ty Proctor, Taylor Poole, Josh Bates.
