Sheffield's five year long unbeaten record at Owlerton will face a severe examination on Thursday night (25th) with the visit of Elite League Eastbourne in the first leg of the British League Cup quarterfinal. Former world champion Mark Loram heads the Eagles' challenge.

Loram will be a handful indeed against the Tigers, who must hope to build up a large lead to take to Arlington on Saturday evening. Dean Barker, Joonas Kylmakorpi, Adam Sheilds, Dean Barker, Mark Burrows, Matt Read and Joel Parsons complete the Eagles septet for Thursday night.

With Andre unlikely to be fit, the Tigers will again utilise the rider replacement facility to cover his absence - and they'll have to be on top form as in addition to the Elite League class of Loram and Barker both Shields and Kylmakorpi have been big scorers at Owlerton this season.
