SHEFFIELD Sharks captain Adrian Anderson says he is pleased both with the progress of his injured hand and that of the team in his absence.

Sharks have strung together four wins in a row after a five match losing streak left them off the pace at the top of the BBL Championship table.

Anderson has missed the last few weeks after needing surgery on a broken hand, but he’s delighted with how the operation went and the form that his teammates have shown: “I’m going to have to do a lot of work with the exercise ball, but the operation went really well and the surgeon is pleased with my progress. I’ve been to all the games in the last few weeks, and I’m really pleased that the signs of potential that we showed at the start of the season are being fulfilled.

“We’re moving the ball fluidly instead of it getting stuck in someone’s hands and ending up with a rushed shot. Our defence has really stepped up, and that’s down to our intensity in practice.

“If you train hard, you play hard and the level of intensity has really stepped up – and that is bearing fruit.”

Sharks travel to Glasgow Rocks on Friday.
