Portsmouth plan to make Hay finale a big success against Hook
Jack Marston insists Portsmouth will be fired up for their Southern League division one contest against Hook & Newnham Basics at home tomorrow.
He believes his side have two added incentives to win the game.
Australian all-rounder Fraser Hay makes his final appearance before returning to Perth.
The home side are determined to give their popular team-mate a winning send-off.
A win will also extend Portsmouth's winning run to nine games in the league and keep them on track for a top-two finish.
There is also a hint of revenge in the air after the game between the two sides earlier in the season.
On that occasion Hook squeezed to a narrow win and Jack Marston's team are intent on turning the tables after feeling they should have done better then.
He said: '˜We have a bit of a score to settle after losing to them on the last ball in the first game.
'˜It was a game that we felt we should have won.
'˜More importantly, though, I am sure the players will want to win it for Fraser.
'˜It is no coincidence that our fortunes changed from the point he arrived back in the country.
'˜With him, my brother Andrew Marston and James Christian all becoming available at the same time we suddenly had three of our biggest contributors back.
'˜Fraser has already indicated he intends coming back for a fourth spell with us next year and that is great news.
'˜His batting is miles above everyone else, he is technically very sound and hits the ball hard.
'˜For us he has proved an aggressive run-maker.
'˜Though he bats number three we could pretty much put him in anywhere.
'˜He picks up the length better than anyone I know and scores all around the wicket.'
Hay has also made an impact with the ball in hand once again.
Jack Marston added: '˜His bowling at our level is also very useful.
'˜We can almost expect him to take one or two wickets up top and can come back later and run through the tail.2
'˜We are going to miss him in the final weeks of the season.'
The home side have the luxury of naming an unchanged side.
