Skipper Kyle Howarth is gunning for another maximum with Sheffield tonight.

Howarth went through the card in the last home meeting but faces a much tougher test when Scunthorpe visit. Scorpions have booked Richard Lawson, who loves the Sheffield track, as cover for injured Steve Worrall.

But Howarth is fired up a - particularly now the weather has changed for the better!

He said: “I wish I’d have had even more meetings by now, but because of all the rain-offs that’s not been possible” Howarth said. “But I can’t complain with the meetings that I have done so far and fingers crossed I can keep it going.

“It doesn’t matter what league you race in, when you get a max or a paid max and go unbeaten by the other team, i there’s nothing better for your confidence.”

Howarth is under no illusion about how tough it will be for his side against a powerhouse Scunthorpe.

He said: “They’ve built a strong team this year and look a lot more competitive than they have done in years,” Howarth said. They should be two good meetings and hopefully we can show everyone what we’re made of again.”

SHEFFIELD: Kyle Howarth, Todd Kurtz, Charles Wright, Josh Bates R/R, Lasse Bjerre, Jack Smith, James Shanes.

SCUNTHORPE: Richard Lawson, Stefan Nielsen, Josh Auty, Jake Allen, Jason Garrity, Danny Phillips, Gino Manzares.
