Herefordshire will return to Minor Counties Championship action on Sunday when they will take on Shropshire at Bridgnorth.
Chairman of selectors Ernie Morgan says the team need a lift after their MCCA Trophy exit against Cumberland.
"Everybody was very disappointed after that one and they sat in the dressing room for a long time after that one," he said.
"It did hit everyone pretty hard but it is another day and another game and I am sure they will be up for it."
Herefordshire were in a very strong position in that match against Cumberland but a fine innings of 106 from Garry Pratt took the game away from them.
This came off the back of a two-day defeat by Cheshire in their opening Championship match at Colwall and Morgan accepts the side could do with a win.
"Shropshire are always a strong side and we are playing at Bridgnorth which is usually a good wicket to bat on so hopefully we can get some runs," he said.
"We are a bit underpowered in the bowling attack - we have got a lot of batsmen but could have done with one or two more bowlers.
"Getting 20 wickets in this game might prove a little difficult for us but we will give it our best shot," he added.
Herefordshire are without left-arm spinner Charlie Griffiths who is unavailable while Ted Bayliss also misses out due to a knee injury.
Oxford University player Charlie Walker is set to make his debut for Herefordshire as a batsman who bowls off-spin.
Morgan stresses everyone in the Herefordshire camp is desperate to avoid what would be an unwanted hat-trick of defeats.
"It is important that we avoid defeat in this one as we certainly don't want to end up with a succession of losses," he said.
"This is particularly so as our next match is against a Berkshire side that has a lot of money and a lot of former professionals playing for them.
"This is definitely a game in which we have to try and get something."
