Sheffield Tigers co-promoter Peter Mole is relishing their Premier League Play-Off Semi-Final clash with Glasgow.

Tigers will head to Ashfield tomorrow (3pm) for the first leg after their home meeting at Owlerton on Thursday was rained off.

Mole knows his injury-hit side will be up against it but insists they are capable of keeping their title dreams alive.

Former Tigers’ favourite Ricky Wells and ex-Glasgow man Theo Pijper are booked to guest for Jason Garrity and Dimitri Berge.

Mole knows it is crucial to keep the scoreline as close as possible to head into the re-arranged decider at Owlerton on a date yet to be confirmed.

Mole said: “The Glasgow meeting is going to be hard; they are a tough team at their home place. They’ve not lost many meetings there, I think they’ve only been beaten by Somerset.

“We’d have liked to have had the first leg at home so we could go there knowing what we have to do. Now we’ll just be going to keep the scores as close as possible and give ourselves the best chance to get through in the home leg.

“Josh Bates had an excellent meeting at Glasgow when guesting there last Sunday, so it’d be great if he could do the same this weekend. We’ve gone with a couple of good guests to replace injured riders, so hopefully those choices prove to be correct and they can play their part as well.

“It’s a big occasion and they should be two really exciting meetings and fingers crossed the result can go our way.

“We’ll just go about our business on Sunday, give it our all and just try and put ourselves in the strongest position we can for the second leg.”
