Moores plotting second victory over former club
Tuesday 26 April 2011
Few surprises are likely to be sprung at Hove today. Sussex play host to Lancashire, the County Championship's early joint leaders, having already played them this season in Liverpool. The visitors' coach, Peter Moores, meanwhile, was the man who guided Sussex into the greatest era in their history at the start of the last decade.
Lancashire won that first game by an innings and 55 runs but since then Sussex have pulled off a run-chase victory against one of the division's best sides, Durham.
Moores, whose side will welcome back captain Glen Chapple, expects a hard-fought contest. "Sussex are a good side and buoyed by that win," he said. "It's their first home game, so they'll be really up for that challenge. We'll go there expecting a tough game."
Elsewhere, co-leaders Warwickshire go to Durham after seeing off local rivals Worcestershire last week. The Pears travel to Nottinghamshire hoping to build on a promising display in that game.
