Super skipper Simon Stead earned rave reviews after slamming in a magnificent five-ride maximum to lead Sheffield to a first Premier League win of the season.
Team boss Joe Screen led the praise after his number one went through the card as the bottom-of-the-table Tigers saw off their Scottish namesakes at Owlerton.
Screen said: “It’s great to get a win on the board after not racing for so long - and even better to see our number one riding like that.
“Simon has had a bit of a slow start to the season, but he is full of confidence now and that rubs off on the other lads.
“We all know he is a top rider and I don’t see why he can’t top the Premier League averages with performances like this.”
Sheffield stormed out of the traps as Stead and partner Taylor Poole provided the perfect start with a 5-1 in the opener.
British Under 21 champion Josh Bates then led home a 4-2 in the second and another 4-2 followed when Ty Proctor claimed the first race win of his Sheffield career by holding off Theo Pijper in heat four.
Stead and Bates formed a successful makeshift combination when landing a 5-1 in heat six – the latter getting the nod after Poole had ploughed into the tapes.
Proctor’s night went downhill as he was powerless to prevent Glasgow top-scorer Anders Thomsen completing a successful tactical ride in a heat seven 6-3 for the visitors. Poole’s retirement from the third spot in heat eight then gifted them a 4-2.
Poole also lost out to Thomsen in a battle for second in heat 10 as main men Stead completed a hat-trick of heat wins, but more problems for Proctor followed.
He eventually raced from a 15-metre handicap in heat 11 after twice touching the tapes at the start and predictably made no impression as Glasgow duo Kevin Wolbert and Christian Henry bagged a 5-1. But any fears of a Sheffield collapse were dismissed as Proctor redeemed himself by following home Stead for a maximum in heat 13 to clinch victory.
Maximum points were soon in the bag as Andre Compton blasted round the boards to inspire a 4-2 in the penultimate race and Stead provided the perfect finish by completing his flawless display in the finale.
Sheffield face a daunting task against more Scottish opposition tonight as they travel to unbeaten Edinburgh in the opening leg of a League Cup semi-final.
They are sweating over the fitness of youngster Bates who was due to go to hospital for x-rays on his back following a crash last weekend. Bates pulled up in his final ride last night.
