Tigers still chasing an EPL double

Telford Tigers face a Coventry showdown with Basingstoke Bison after they qualified for the EPL play-off weekend with an 8-0 drubbing of Sheffield Steeldogs.

The EPL champions will play Basingstoke in Saturday’s second semi-final, with the winners playing either MK Lightning or Guildford Flames in Sunday’s final.

Tigers’ boss Tom Watkins believes playing in the second game could prove to be an advantage.

He said: “Whoever wins the semi-final will have a bit less rest before the final on Sunday, but it also means the routine won’t change.

“Guys will be eating at the same time they normally do on a matchday and I think that could be a plus.

“We are comfortable with whoever we play next weekend. We’re going there to try and win a second trophy this season.”
