Leicestershire look certain to field an unchanged side against Worcestershire in the Norwich Union League match at Oakham on Sunday, despite losing to Glamorgan on Tuesday.

Head coach Phil Whitticase described the performance against Glamorgan as the side's "poorest of the season" but added:"I am sure it was just a blip and the players deserve the chance to put things right at Oakham."

With Charles Dagnall and Rob Cunliffe both unavailable for selection because of injuries, Whitticase seems likely to name an unchanged side with Devon Malcolm once again on the sidelines. The policy this season is to rest Malcolm in one-day cricket so that he can concentrate on the Championship.

It means that Matthew Whiley and Jamie Grove will be the new ball attack with support coming from Phil DeFreitas,Vince Wells,Carl Crowe, Darren Maddy and Zimbabwe all-rounder Grant Flower who made his debut against Glamorgan.

Flower has taken over from Michael Bevan as the Leicestershire overseas player while the Australian is away on one-day international duty.

The likely team for the game at Oakham is: Wells, Ward, Sutcliffe, Stevens, Flower, Maddy, Burns, DeFreitas, Crowe, Grove, Whiley.

Meanwhile Cunliffe is to see a specialist on Monday about the damaged finger which has kept him out of the first team in recent weeks.He was able to play for the Second X1 away to Derbyshire this week, scoring 43 a rain affected match which ended in a draw. Derbyshire made 355-7 and Leicestershire were 145-5 when the game was abandoned.
