CHESTER Jets go in search of a BBL Trophy semi-final spot this weekend.
Billy Singleton's men may be struggling in the league, but their Trophy hopes are alive after they defeated Coventry Crusaders in their first group game.
Tonight's hosts, Sheffield Sharks, will come out fighting, however, as they too have their sights set on the last four.
The teams have already met twice in the BBL Championship this season, with Sharks recording comfortable wins on each occasion.
They returned from Northgate Arena on Bonfire Night with an 87-69 victory, while three weeks later 25 points from Jeff Bonds helped them record a 73-63 home victory.
Sharks coach Peter Scantle-bury is anticipating a tough contest.
He said: 'Chester will be up for the game as it's a chance to put their league form behind them and reach a semi-final.
'Maurice Hargrow and Jaz Cowan were their two main scorers against us. Hargrow's just left, but they still have Cowan. Alto Virgil was the player who hurt us most last time, though so we'll need to take care of him.'
After their clash with Sheffield, Chester face Worcester Wolves in another BBL Trophy group game at Northgate Arena on Sunday.
Worcester already know they cannot qualify but coach Josh Cooprider is in no doubt that his side's trip to the Northgate is a must-win game.
'Every time you step on to the floor you have the opportunity to win. We can't focus on the past, we have to be aiming to win the game,' he said.
'We are a losing team and we have to fix things internally so this is a good chance to get a win.
'When we played Chester before it gave us our one lone win, but they've changed their team since then.'
