A simple plan is the key to end troubles

WOLLASTON captain Chris Perry believes that adhering to a simple plan will help his side recover from their early-season struggles.

The London Road outfit have ben beaten by Peterborough and Northampton Saints over the past two weeks and it has been their batting that has proved to be their Achilles heel.

Totals of 31 and 71 tell their own story and Perry knows that has to change at Avenue Road tomorrow.

He said: “We need to bat for 55 overs and get a total on the board and we can’t hide from that.

“If we can get a score then I’d back us to bowl sides out but any side would struggle if they can’t score any runs.”

In this fixture last season, Wollaston claimed their first ever victory over Finedon and Perry knows exactly what to expect.

He added: “Last week was about trying to overcome our hoodoo against the Saints and this week it’s about trying to repeat last year.

“We know they’ve got seamers who are always at you and a couple of good spinners, we’ve worked on that at training and we’ll be ready.”

As for Finedon, Perry’s opposite number, Andy Daniels, is eyeing another maximum points haul to complement their win at Burton Latimer last week.

He said: “It could be a good time to play them, they’ve not had that much cricket and have struggled for runs.

“There should still be a bit of moisture in the pitch with the weather we’ve had so there should be a result.

“For us it will be about making a positive start, getting runs at the top of the order and going from there.”

Finedon replace Mal Loye, Dave Clarke and Jon Dunne with Chris Todd, Primesh Patel and Adam Nunn, while Wollaston will be unchanged.
