Sheffield aim to preserve their unbeaten home record against Workington on Thursday night. The Comets are the last club to beat Tigers on their own track in Premier League business - they ended a record stretching back to 1998 last September.

They have called on the services Rye House number one Stuart Robson as a guest replacement for injured skipper Carl Stonehewer and Scott Robson is still suffering from injury so they will use the rider replacement facility to cover.

Tigers are unchanged and stinging criticism from co-boss Neil Machin earlier in the week will still be ringing in their ears. He said: "It was a dismal weekend for us and it's nice for us to have a home meeting to get it out of our system."

"We also need a big win tonight in order for us to challenge for the aggregate bonus point when we head to Workington next month. I still believe we're in a good league position and a top three finish is what we're looking for - then we can put in a good challenge in the Young Shield play-offs."
