DBL Sharks Sheffield aim to put a poor opening weekend of the BBL season behind them on Friday night.

Sharks suffered a 79-58 defeat against Leeds Force after being beaten 85-54 by Leicester Riders the night before.

Their Friday night assignment is against Worcester Wolves at the University of Worcester Arena, (7:30pm )

Wolves know that Sharks will want to get the results out of their system.

Paul James, Wolves head coach said: “We go into the game with a lot of confidence after a positive opening weekend. They are going to be dangerous with their backs against the wall, but we have to focus more on what we need to do.”

Worcester started the season 1-1 after claiming a thrilling overtime win against Cheshire Phoenix on opening night before pushing Leicester Riders close.

Sheffield host Plymouth Raiders on Sunday at 2pm.
