Elliott's team has made a perfect start - five wins from five games – and they are considered favourites to win the title.

But Telford Tigers have made a similarly successful start - so there is all to play for.

Elliott was rested last weekend by the iceSheffield team due to a "niggle”.

But co-owner Roger Williams said he is expected to be back in the lineup for this weekend’s clash with the Tigers.
