Sussex are at Trent Bridge today for their penultimate match in the LV= County Championship this season, as they take on Nottinghamshire.

After securing Division 1 status on Friday by sealing a fantastic seven-wicket victory over Lancashire at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Sussex will be aiming to continue their strong finish to the season with a win over Nottinghamshire, who’s title aspirations were ended with defeat to champions Yorkshire last week.

Skipper Ed Joyce was in fine form against Lancashire, hitting 137 and 79 whilst both Chris Nash and Craig Cachopa struck half-centuries in each innings. Ashar Zaidi returned to the side to score 66 and take five wickets, and both Chris Jordan and Steve Magoffin were also amongst the scalps.

The squad sees Will Beer and Jon Lewis added to the eleven that faced Lancashire. Injured quartet James Anyon, Rory Hamilton-Brown, Matthew Hobden and Matt Prior have all been ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Sussex squad is as follows: WAT Beer, BC Brown (wkt), C Cachopa, LJ Hatchett, CJ Jordan, EC Joyce (capt), J Lewis, SJ Magoffin, CD Nash, LWP Wells, LJ Wright, MH Yardy, SAA Zaidi.

The match starts at 10.30am.
