Sheffield booked a British Championship semi-final clash with Humberside at Wembley on Saturday after a 7-3 defeat of Basingstoke in their final Group A play-off match last night left them top of the standings. The Steelers edged out Nottingham, who were held 5-5 by Fife, on goal difference.

Nottingham now meet Durham, who maintained their hold on top place in Group B with a narrow 6-4 win over Newcastle while Humberside, although beaten 8-2 by Cardiff, had already done enough to make the last four. Humberside clinched their place with a 6-4 win over Durham. Cardiff Devils, despite winning 6-3 against Newcastle Warriors, failed to qualify.
