FORMER Frenchville Falcons firebrand David Goltz makes his return to A-grade in tonight's Frenchville Sports Club Twenty20 Premier division match against reigning champions Brothers.

With batsman Brent Hartley unavailable and young left-arm spinner Kobie O'Brien heading home to Barcaldine for the weekend, Goltz and fellow former paceman Karl Batey make a welcome return to Frenchville's line-up.

Called upon by Falcons skipper Jason Wells, the pair are expected to turn out for tonight's round-two fixture against Brothers at Rockhampton Cricket Ground before backing up tomorrow against Capricorn Coast.

"He's been bowling a little bit this last couple of weeks; he's kept in good shape and he's still pretty sharp," Wells said of Goltz.

"They both pulled up pretty sore after bowling this week, but that's only natural - they're good to go."

The pair's inclusion was to prevent disruption to Frenchville's reserve grade team and its pursuit of a Twenty20 title.

Wells said Brothers' match tonight wouldn't have a major impact on tomorrow's match.

"It's a bit of a mix. Sure, a couple of the guys might pull up sore after it, but they could also bat themselves into a bit of form as well," Wells said.

"But, I don't think it'll really matter. Guys generally recover pretty quickly as you're not batting or bowling for long periods, so I don't think it'll play much of a factor."

Frenchville is looking for back-to-back wins after its seven-wicket triumph over Brunny Bulls on Sunday. Tonight's match starts at 6pm.
