Graham Wagg starred again with a fine 57 as Glamorgan made a good fist of responding to Leicestershire's first innings total of 500 all out on day three of their Championship Division Two match at Grace Road.

Wagg, who had taken four first-innings wickets to limit the Leicestershire damage, passed his half-century before he was caught by Rob Taylor off Charlie Shreck shortly after helping them to avoid the follow on, to bring an end to the Glamorgan innings at 359.

In a match delayed by bad light, Glamorgan had resumed on 126 without loss but Jacques Rudolph managed to add just two to his overnight total before he was run out in the fourth over of the day on 65. Fellow opener Gareth Rees reached 72 before he was bowled by Ben Raine as Glamorgan fell to 161 for 2. A solid 35 from Stewart Walters and 41 from Jim Allenby maintained the visitors' momentum.

Anthony Ireland was the pick of the Leicestershire bowlers with 3 for 81 off his 27 overs, figures almost matched by Shreck, for whom the wicket of Wagg gave him a total of 3 for 84 off 29.

Leicestershire launched a solid reply in their second innings with Greg Smith and Matthew Boyce putting on 63 for the first wicket before Boyce was caught by Mark Wallace off Dean Cosker for 24. Smith went to reach an unbeaten 45 and Ned Eckersley joined him as Leicestershire reached 77 for 1 at stumps for an overall lead of 218.
