NATE Reinking, one of Great Britain’s top players, will return from injury to Sharks’ line up against Durham Wildcats at the EIS tonight

The shooting guard has had knee problems for a couple of months but is now available to help Sheffield attempt to pick up their first win in four.

The Sharks should be in confident mood, having already beaten tonight’s opponents twice on their home turf.

Sheffield swept the Wildcats aside with two wins back in December.

The opponents are bottom of the BBL Championship, having picked up just four points and two wins all season.

The new boys, who were elected to the BBL Championship after winning the English League last season, are playing for pride as they cannot reach the play-offs.

Despite this, Wildcats coach Dave Elderkin has never been downbeat and wants them to close out the season in style.

Sheffield, who have an 11-15 record this season, need to pick up two wins to make sure of their place in the play-offs.

They currently lie sixth in the Championship table on 22 points, with the top eight teams qualifying for the post-season competition.
