Lancashire skipper Chapple targets weekend return

Glen Chapple has been with Lancashire for 19 years

Lancashire captain Glen Chapple is hoping to make his return from injury at Nottinghamshire on Sunday.

The 37-year old has been out of action with a hip injury that has meant he has missed thirteen matches in all competitions.

Chapple told BBC Radio Lancashire: "It's a bit of a rare injury that apparently nobody has seen torn before, but it is just a muscle tear.

"It has reduced in size and I should be fit soon."

In his absence, Lancashire have kept themselves in the county championship title race - although they have been beaten by title rivals Durham home and away - and also remain in touch with the top four places in the T20 table.

Chapple said: "We were well within our rights not to have any pressure on us at the start of the season, with many people saying we had a weak squad if anything.

"But at the same time our supporters demand success and want the team to do well. We know that and know they've got a right to expect that as well."

You can hear Nottinghamshire against Lancashire on BBC Radio Lancashire 855 and 1557 AM, DAB and bbc.co.uk/lancashire from 2.30 this Sunday afternoon.
