CHERRIES manager Eddie Howe will give Dutch duo Frank Demouge and Lorenzo Davids chance to impress in a reserve friendly tomorrow afternoon.

Howe is set to field a very strong-looking Cherries XI when he runs the rule over a number of his fringe players at Exeter City (1pm).

Demouge and Davids will be joined by a host of senior squad members as Howe hands valuable game-time to his men.

Wes Thomas will be given an opportunity to catch the eye following his return from a loan spell at Portsmouth.

The likes of Mark Molesley, Stephane Zubar, Eunan O’Kane, Donal McDermott, Joe Partington and Wes Fogden are also set to play.

The friendly match against the Grecians will represent a chance for marquee summer signings Demouge and Davids to show Howe what they can do.

Neither player has featured in the first team since Howe succeeded Paul Groves as Cherries boss.

An experienced striker in the Dutch top-flight, Demouge joined Cherries from FC Utrecht. But the 30-year-old has been restricted to just two appearances, the last of which saw him suffer concussion at Crawley Town.

Davids, cousin of Dutch legend Edgar, is a versatile midfielder who joined Cherries after being released by German club FC Augsburg.

Having signed a two-year contract, the 26-year-old has so far made three appearances for the Dorset outfit.
