Keeping Wolves from the door

Two sides with contrasting current form meet at the EIS tomorrow evening when the One Health Sharks Sheffield host Worcester Wolves in the BBL Championship.

Sharks’ start to the BBL Championship season has seen them win only one of their first four games, which is their worst ever opening to the regular season, while Wolves are on a roll with eight straight victories in all competitions, and their 4-0 start to the Championship season is their best since joining the competition in 2006.

Sharks’ club captain Adrian Anderson missed last Friday’s defeat against Leicester Riders after breaking a bone in his right hand, and will undergo surgery on Wednesday, but he is hoping that the Sharks can turn things around in his absence: “I imagine the Riders game was very frustrating, but we need to start picking up some wins.

“I can’t remember a run like this for Sharks, and it can affect you one of two ways. Either you come our fired up looking to mend your damaged pride or you come out lacing in pride. Hopefully it’ll be the former because I’m sure we’re tied of being on the receiving end of losses and we won’t want it to continue.

“I don’t know a lot about Wolves, but I know that Paul James recruits really well, they play good offence and they’ll be tough to beat.”
