Captain Alviro Petersen has challenged his Glamorgan team-mates to bounce back against Middlesex in the Friends Life T20 on Tuesday.

Glamorgan suffered their second defeat of the competition on Saturday with Kent securing a last-over win at the Swalec Stadium.

Their next game on Tuesday at Richmond will be against a side they defeated in their opening fixture of the campaign.

"We'd like to do the double on them," said Petersen.

"Away games are always difficult games [and] we'll have to be up for it again.

"We're obviously down at the moment with the loss and rightfully so.

"But come Tuesday I'm sure we'll be up for it when the game starts and we can put in a good performance."

Middlesex will host Glamorgan at Old Deer Park, the home of Richmond Cricket Club and London Welsh RFC.

Petersen said Glamorgan will not be altering their approach to the game to account for the smaller boundary at Richmond.

"I think every game you need to adjust your tactics," said Petersen. "The basics stay the same but tactically things might differ.

"Every game deserves a new look from a tactical point of view and Middlesex will be nothing different."

Glamorgan's six wicket defeat at the hands of Kent was their first defeat of the season in all competitions at the Swalec Stadium.

And Petersen, who was awarded his county cap during the interval of the Kent game, is confident his side can rediscover their home form.

"We've played good cricket throughout the year so far and it's our first loss at the Swalec, two months or so into the season," said the South African.

"We wanted to make sure the Swalec is our fortress but we'll just have to come back again.

"We've played good cricket here and hopefully we can continue for a long time."
