‘We have got two massive games’ says Tres
Less than 24 hours after their game with Hampshire ended at the County Ground the Somerset squad were climbing aboard the team coach for the trip to Hove where they face Sussex on Monday morning.
Currently with two games left to play, the sides are level on 176 points in the LV=County Championship Division One table, but Sussex are sixth and Somerset seventh because the south coast side has won an extra match.
Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick said: “We have still two massive games going into the back end of this season and every point we are going to get now is going to be really crucial.
“We haven’t had very long to rest and recover, but hopefully we can get straight back on it and get another result at Hove.”
Looking ahead to the match Matt Maynard the Somerset Director of Cricket said: “I see our game at Sussex as the final game of the season and we know that if we win that match we are safe, so we are concentrating on that as out last game of the year.”
Alex Barrow and Tim Groenewald are added the team that drew last week with Hampshire.
The full Somerset squad is- Marcus Trescothick (capt), Tom Abell, Jim Allenby, Alex Barrow, Tom Cooper, Lewis Gregory, Tim Groenewald, James Hildreth, Jack Leach, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Luke Ronchi and Pete Trego.
