JAMES Vince has urged his Hampshire side to show some “pride” in their last four Vitality Blast fixtures and take some momentum into the Specsavers County Championship relegation battle.

Hampshire were officially ruled out of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Blast following their six-wicket defeat to Somerset on Wednesday.

After only one win and seven defeats from ten fixtures, Vince has sent a rallying call to his team-mates in a bid to find some form ahead of two Vitality Blast games in three days – and .

“We still have to turn up in the last games,” said Vince who is averaging just 16.89 for Hampshire this season. “We’re still proud of the team we have and aren’t going to roll over easily.

“That’s why I was happy with the way we came out with the ball in the second half of the Somerset game.

“There are four games to go, we are looking for wins and to take some momentum into the back end of the season.

“It’s important that there is a good feeling amongst the group and we don’t start doubting ourselves and turning on each other.

“We need to stick together and nothing helps more than winning a few games.”

Hampshire play Glamorgan in Cardiff tonight, seeking revenge for their 63-run thrashing by the Welsh side earlier in the campaign.

“Glamorgan are a very good side and have a few very dangerous players,” Vince said.

“It’s a different ground to play on with short straight boundaries.

“If you haven’t played there before you might have to have a think about how you are going to go about it.

“It is another opportunity for this team to make some contributions and get another win on the board.

“We want wickets up front, like in every game. Colin Ingram is their real danger man. He is in good form and is always a big wicket.

“But it isn’t just him, they have a good side, like every side in the South Group. It will be a tough test.”

Dale Steyn took 1-21 on his comeback against Somerset following Colin Munro’s exit to the Caribbean Premier League.

“Dale is back in so we’re a batter down now,” Vince said. “Munners showed glimpses of what he’s capable of but now Rilee has an opportunity at the top of the order.”

Hampshire host Essex (Sunday) and Gloucestershire (Friday) either side of next Wednesday’s clash against Surrey at The Oval.

They return to Specsavers County Championship action against Nottinghamshire at The Ageas Bowl next Sunday.
