Neil Saker was the pick of the Glamorgan bowlers with 4-80.

CLOSE OF PLAY SUMMARY

BBC Radio Kent's Matt Cole:

"The wicket didn't seem to offer as much movement as it did to Glamorgan on the first morning, but Neil Saker stuck to his task, being brought on for spell after spell. He won't have any trouble sleeping.

"Otherwise, the Kent attack lacked any real penetration and, although they fielded tightly enough, there was never a feeling that a Glamorgan collapse was imminent.

"Not surprising perhaps, given that Dewald Nel is playing his first game of the season and Matt Coles has just re-emerged from Kent's crowded sick-bay too, but it was a long, tiring day in the field."
