Match scorecard

Glamorgan skittled Lancashire for 123 before James Anderson took 3-28 to give his side some sort of foothold.

The visitors' batsmen never got going, Michael Hogan bowling Paul Horton for a duck in the first over of the day.

Seamers Hogan and John Glover took three wickets each as just three batters got into double-figures.

The hosts reached stumps 110-4 and it could have been worse for Lancashire had Simon Kerrigan and Anderson not grabbed a wicket apiece late on.

BBC Radio Lancashire's Scott Read:

"Lancashire showed excellent fighting spirit and are still in the game thanks to some brilliant bowling by James Anderson.

"The England man led from the front for the Red Rose, who endured a difficult day with the bat.

"On a pitch that appears to be playing well Lancashire will rely on their bowlers tomorrow morning to prevent the home side building a sizeable and potential match-winning first-innings lead."
