PORTSMOUTH host Andover at St Helens in a big Southern League division one contest.

Both teams are in good form having lost just once in their opening four games and home captain Jack Marston is expecting a tough game.

He said: ‘Andover have ex-Hampshire batsman Lewis McManus playing for them so we know they will present a threat.

‘I am confident if we turn up then we can get the right result.

 ‘We have picked up some good momentum in the last couple of weeks.

‘Narrowly getting over the line at Rowledge was a big moment in the season for us.

‘It gave us greater belief and confidence going forward.’

That confidence was in evidence in the win at Ventnor where Portsmouth posted a mammoth 350 runs.

Ben Duggan scored an excellent century and he was well supported by Fraser Hay and Will Smitherman.

Marston thinks there is more to come from his side.

He said: ‘We are still looking for that complete polished performance.

‘Maybe we can produce it against Andover because we generally play better on our home ground.’

Wicket-keeper Alex Hammond is back from injury.

Portsmouth are also in t20 action at home on Sunday against South Wilts.



View From Silly Point by Jamie (Mitch) Mitchell

Pompey 2s' positive start to the season continued last weekend (conveniently ignoring the previous week's trip to Ferndown), with a 76-run win over promotion-chasing Bramshaw.

Despite last week's dismal showing with the bat, skipper Nicky Wyatt didn't pause for thought (a concept as widely believed as Natalie Portman dating Moby) in electing to bat first, under blue skies at St Helens.

The oft used cliche "it'll do a bit early" rang true, as openers Wyatt and Jamie Mitchell made the task of batting look like North Korean hard labour. Once Wyatt had picked out the only fielder on the leg side on 20, the bulk-scoring baton was passed onto Tom Wallis, who caressed a peerless 110.

While Wyatt wielded his bat like a lumberjack would an axe during his ton in the previous home game, Wallis' was more the surgeon's scalpel, incising the Bramshaw attack with the ease of Matt Shaw combing his hair of a morning.

Unlike the major political parties during the week's EU elections, Wallis gained support throughout the order (Mitchell 28, Paul Hungerford 18, and Jed Whitecross a dubious 17), in enabling Pompey to post a defendable 237 for 8.

With the job only half complete (like these match reports once submitted), the Unicorns needed to return to the Wyatt/lumberjack analogy, and start chopping down the strong visiting top order.

Although wicketless, Whitecross made scoring difficult for the Bramshaw openers - only conceding 17 from his 7 over spell. The ever-increasing required run rate nudged the door open for debutant Scott Dale (3 for 40 from 9 overs) and Lee Hungerford (2 for 36 from 9) to barge on through unceremoniously.

Paul Hungerford chimed in with a wicket of his own, before Ethan "Dyson" Randall cleaned up, claiming the scalp of Bramshaw's top-scoring opener during his 15-ball spell of 3 for 6, to dismiss the visitors for 161.

Pompey 2s are back on the road this Saturday, as they make the trip to the picturesque Odiham & Greywell.
