CLOSE OF PLAY SUMMARIES
BBC Wales cricket correspondent Edward Bevan:
"With James Harris and Jim Allenby out through injury and Dean Cosker suffering from a mild chest infection, it was hard work for Glamorgan's depleted attack on a placid Northampton pitch.
"To their credit they restricted the home side to just over three runs an over as Northants ended the day on 325-3.
"With poor weather forecast it already looks as if this game will end in a draw between the two top sides in Division Two but Glamorgan will hope for some more bowling points. To date they've gained just one."
