PREVIEW: Sussex poised for top of the table clash at Hove


Sussex are boosted by the return of Mike Yardy to the squad

Sussex head into a top of the table clash this weekend at The County Ground, as they entertain Middlesex from Sunday onwards in the LV=County Championship (11.00am start).

The visitors are a narrow three points clear of Sussex at the top of the Division One table with both sides having won two out of three games so far this season.

In Sussex's last outing, at Durham, a superb record last-wicket stand between debutant Ollie Robinson and Matt Hobden yielded 164 runs. It not only set the record for Sussex's biggest ever tenth wicket partnership, which had stood since 1908, but Robinson scored a century on what was both his first-class and Championship debut, the first to do so for Sussex since 1920.

In terms of team news, Sussex can welcome back Michael Yardy from illness but Matt Prior remains sidelined through injury, as do seamers James Anyon, Lewis Hatchett and Tymal Mills. Chris Jordan is unavailable following England's tour of the West Indies.

The Sussex squad is as follows:

BC Brown (wkt)
C Cachopa
HZ Finch
ME Hobden
EC Joyce (c)
MW Machan
SJ Magoffin
CD Nash
OE Robinson
A Shahzad
LWP Wells
LJ Wright
MH Yardy
SAA Zaidi
