The Somerset Sabres will be looking for their first National Cricket League win of the season when they take on Nottingham Outlaws at the County Ground in Taunton this afternoon.

Whilst the Sabres have been unsuccessful in all of their three starts in the white ball game and are at the foot of Division Two the Outlaws have got one victory from their two outings and are placed halfway up the table.

The Sabres will be hoping to build upon their emphatic success over Glamorgan in the county championship that will certainly have boosted the team's confidence after their Scottish experience last week.

Ahead of the game coach Kevin Shine told me: "We will be hoping that we can carry on from our great victory yesterday and get our first NCL points against Nottinghamshire this afternoon."

The make up of the side will be somewhat different from the team that was victorious on Saturday, and with pacemen Richard Johnson and Nixon McLean both being rested, Steffan Jones and Gareth Andrew come into the squad, along with Keith Parsons whilst Carl Gazzard is also included as cover for James Bryant who is suffering with a sore neck.

Reserve keeper Gazzard, who hails from Penzance, has been in good form with the bat for Somerset Seconds and has an impressive century and ninety to his name already this season, and will play as a batsman in this game if Bryant fails to pass a late fitness test this morning.
