WODONGA Wolves will be boosted by the return of Beau Sheridan for tonight’s important home clash against Seymour.
Sheridan has missed the opening month of the CBL season with an ankle injury and will be a key inclusion for coach Michael Hickey, who will be without the likes of Dylan Webb, Broady Mills and Josh McKay.
Webb isn’t expected back this season after shoulder surgery.
“The load will be placed on our quick, fast transitional game,” Hickey said.
“Keeping Seymour off the boards will be key to our success.”
The Wolves are coming off the bye but have won their two games to sit third on the table behind Wangaratta and Shepparton.
The Blasters have a win and a loss under their belt, but Hickey is still expecting a tough game.
“Trevor McLean, Heath Ohlin and Adam Hickey will need to find their range quickly, and Jon Lindhe will have the job of keeping the boards under control,” he said.
The top-placed Lady Wolves will be looking for their fourth win from five games against the Lady Blasters.
Doug Polmear’s side is expecting a physical clash against a perennial contender.
The Lady Wolves, who won at home against Echuca 91-54 last week, will be without Ella Hales and Brooke Cincurak but get back Amy Polmear.
The women’s game starts at 6pm and the men’s game at 8pm.
