BOURNEMOUTH skipper Chris Park has kept faith with his charges as their push for the Southern League Division One title goes down to the wire.

Beaten by 105 runs at Ventnor last time out, the league leaders have named the same team in a bid to bounce back against third-placed Portsmouth at Chapel Gate on Saturday (12.30pm).

Park told the Daily Echo: “The lads have already refocused. It’s the same team and is tried and tested.

“We will put last weekend down to a minor blip and, hopefully, some home comforts mean we can get a good win.

“We are getting down to squeaky-bum time at the end of the summer and we need two or three wins over the next four games.”

With 11 wins from 14 fixtures, Lions are currently more than two points on average ahead of title rivals Sarisbury Athletic.

In the Premier Division, Lymington host Burridge, New Milton entertain South Wilts and Bashley visit Basingstoke & North Hants.
