WEYMOUTH captain Harry Mitchell believes the Seasiders have a “point to prove” against County Division One basement side Broadstone Seconds at Redlands tomorrow (1.30pm).

Mitchell’s men were defeated by 54 runs at rivals Portland Red Triangle last time out, but Weymouth still occupy fourth having been promoted from Division Two last season.

In the reverse fixture with Broadstone, Lloyd Beals (5-14) and Neil Walton (4-8) demolished the hosts’ batting line-up in dismissing the Delph Woods outfit for a measly 22.

And Mitchell feels there will be no repeat of that extraordinary performance this time around.

He told Echosport: “That was a bit of a fluke game at their place, they were missing a few players.

“We did bowl really well, to give ourselves a little bit of credit. We’ll definitely expect more of a game.

“They’ve been in that league for a number of years now so they have experience and I think it will be a really good game of cricket.

“We’re looking to bounce back after Portland, which was really disappointing and we’ve got a point to prove on our own ground.

“We’re looking forward to it.”

Seasiders’ all-rounder Matt Lawes misses out, but James Almond and Jack Sapsworth return in a squad of 12.

Weymouth (from): England, Webb, Womble, Browne, Almond, Guyett, Mitchell, Blackman, Urumancheri, Beals, J Sapsworth, Puckett
