Dragons relying on home help
The Glamorgan Dragons have targeted back-to-back home wins to keep their Twenty20 Cup hopes alive.
Having claimed only one point from a possible four – a tense three-run defeat to Warwickshire following an opening day washout against Gloucestershire – the Welsh county can’t afford too many more mistakes if they are to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Glamorgan now entertain Somerset (tonight) and Northamptonshire (Thursday) under the Sophia Gardens floodlights before heading to Taunton on Friday.
“We have got to target the two home games now,” said wicket-keeper Mark Wallace, whose defiant 35 at Edgbaston on Sunday almost pulled off an improbable win.
“'The problem against Warwickshire was that we were behind the eight-ball and always chasing the game.
“In the end we weren’t quite good enough, but things aren’t going our way at the moment.
“We don’t want to talk about luck but when our fortunes do change I think we will be able to put a run together.
“There is a lot to be happy about our performances.”
Glamorgan are hoping Alex Wharf and Simon Jones (pictured) will be back for Somerset’s visit (7pm).
Wharf is still on antibiotics for a recent bout of pleurisy, while Jones did not risk his injured knee at Edgbaston.
