Somerset are hoping all-rounder Keith Parsons comes through a practice session today to take his place in their team to face Northamptonshire in the Twenty20 Cup tomorrow.
The Sabres have missed the veteran's experience in their middle order after he suffered a slight groin injury against Glamorgan on Friday. Somerset lost that game off the last ball and were then hammered by Warwickshire on Sunday.
Director of cricket Brian Rose said last night: "I think he is 75 per cent at the moment so we are hoping with another day he will be ready."
Parsons is Somerset's most seasoned one-day batsman and is set to come in at number four if fit.
"Keith is very good when you are two wickets down and there are overs left to bowl so he can use his experience," said Rose. "What we don't really want is two inexperienced players in together."
Tomorrow's match at Taunton (5.30pm) is not a sell-out and supporters can pay on the gate.
