Cheetahs boss looking to overturn 12-point deficit before final race tonight

Cheetahs were beaten 51-39 in Friday’s Knockout Cup quarter final away at Glasgow Tigers, and have confirmed an unchanged septet.

Scoring 52 points or more will guarantee the Cheetahs a spot in the semi-finals.

Cheetahs boss Schroeck said: “For the neutral, this tie is perfectly poised, and there’s every chance it could go down to the last race, but our aim is to wrap up a result much sooner.

“Glasgow will be targeting the same. They won’t make it easy for us and have proven they can win races on our track, so we’ll need to be on it.

“The second half of Friday’s first leg was tough. We ran fourth places in seven of the last eight heats, which hindered our progress but on home shale we’ll look to use that track knowledge to our advantage.

“Often the noise from the terraces makes all the difference so we’re hoping to see plenty trackside and advance to the semi-finals together.”
