Joe Screen is taking the positives from Sheffield’s home defeat by Edinburgh as they head to Newcastle tomorrow (6.30).
But he’s also challenged his riders to avoid a repeat of the heavy League Cup defeat on Tyneside in April when they only managed 27-points. Said Screen: “I know we lost against Edinburgh, who are easily the best Premier League team in years, but we could have turned them over.
“We pushed them hard and there were some positives. Now we need to try and stay positive going to Newcastle.
“As a rider, I sympathise with what some of the lads are going through – it’s not easy and we need to go to Newcastle with pride in our performance.”
SHEFFIELD: Simon Stead, Taylor Poole, Leigh Lanham, Andre Compton, Ty Proctor, Simon Nielsen, Josh Bates.
NEWCASTLE: Danny King, Lewis Kerr R/R, Stuart Robson, Lewis Rose, Ludvig Lindgren, Simon Lambert, Chris Mills.
