SHEFFIELD Sharks have the advantage of the second leg at home in the BBL Trophy semi-final against Cheshire Phoenix.
The first leg is at the Northgate Arena in Chester on Sunday, February 24 (5.30pm) with the return leg at the English Institute of Sport in Attercliffe on Friday, March 1 (7.30pm).
It is the second knock-out competition semi-final that the Sharks have reached this season. Earlier in the campaign they were comprehensively beaten at the last four stage by eventual BBL Cup winners Leicester Riders.
The Sharks have won the BBL Trophy just once - in the 1997/98 season. They were also beaten finalists in 1994/95.
