BOURNEMOUTH skipper Chris Park urged his side to “fight a little harder” as they begin their timed fixtures at home to Burridge on Saturday (11am).

Lions were comprehensively beaten by South Wilts in the 50-over format last time out – their second defeat from three completed games this season.

And Park is looking for improvements with the bat in the longer format.

He told the Daily Echo: “Hopefully as a batting side we can get back to basics, see off the new ball and get stuck in.

“Last week was a bit of a wake-up call and we did get well and truly beaten.

“We need to fight a little bit harder, show more strength in our attitude and mentality and I want to see the batsmen all get their teeth stuck in – and what better way than with 64 overs to bat.”

Dan Conway and Tom Robinson return to the Bournemouth team. Ben Bridgen is unavailable and Jacob Gordon features for the seconds.

Park also confirmed brother Nick would continue to operate at the top of the order after scoring 66 from 88 deliveries when opening last weekend.

The captain added: “He had a good innings last week and hopefully he has found a bit of form.”
