Last heat 4-2 and Witches grab a draw at Sheffield

Sheffield Tigers 45 Ipswich Witches 45

Ipswich ‘Sackers’ Witches picked up two more points, this time at Sheffield, as they march towards the Premier League play-offs.

Jason Doyle, guesting for the injured Ben Barker, won the final race and top-scored with 14, while captain Leigh Lanham picked up third.

The Witches are now awaiting the outcome of Barker’s injury. The Ipswich No.1 crushed a vertabrae in a crash at Birmingham on Wednesday night.

Should he need an operation, it may be his season is over.
