Mills joins Aces for Knights clash
Thursday, 19 December 2013
Kyle Mills will rejoin the Aces for their clash with the Northern Knights starting at Eden Park tomorrow.
Donovan Grobblaar also comes in to replace Mitchell McClenaghan who has been laid low with a stomach bug.
The Aces will be keen to pick up maximum points against the Knights to haul themselves off the bottom of the Plunket Shield table.
Coach Matt Horne is confident that his side can turn things in the right direction.
"Look we realise that there are areas we need to improve in but the way we hung in there down in Napier to grab a draw was really pleasing and I think shows the kind of fighting spirit that we need to display week in week out."
A team will be named from the following twelve players:
Gareth Hopkins (Captain) (Parnell)
Dean Bartlett (Ellerslie)
Michael Bates (Suburbs New Lynn)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Martin Guptill (Suburbs New Lynn)
Tim McIntosh (Parnell)
Bruce Martin (Parnell)
Kyle Mills (Howick Pakuranga)
Colin Munro (Howick Pakuranga)
Matt Quinn (Cornwall)
Jeet Raval (Suburbs New Lynn)
