The Sharks may be boosted by the return of forward Demetrius Jemison for tonight’s BBL Trophy semi-final second leg at Worcester Wolves.

Sheffield trail by two points after losing the first match at the English Institute of Sport last Friday night 62-60 but dominated the second half and will feel confident of overturning the deficit. Jemison has been missing from the Sharks line-up since last month with an ankle injury but will be assessed before tip-off to see whether he can play any part in the game.

Guard Jeremie Simmons is expected to miss out with a wrist injury.

Although the deficit is just two points the Sharks believe the gap should be even smaller.

A BJ Holmes shot in the second half was ruled to be just two points by the match officials but on watching a tape of the game it became apparent Holmes’ feet were outside the three-point line when he released the ball.
