Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick says his side "have nothing to lose" in this year's FL t20 finals day.

Trescothick's side booked their place in the final for the third successive year with a six-wicket victory over Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.

They were runners up in 2009 to Sussex and lost out to Hampshire last season.

"We've got nothing to lose, we've been there twice and lost so lets go there and win for a change." the 35-year-old told BBC Somerset.

Jos Buttler and West Indian Kieron Pollard were Somerset's key men in the win, with their partnership of 66 runs off 26 balls.

"At some points during the game we didn't look like we were going to pull it off, but having the talent like we did of Buttler and Pollard it was a great achievement," added Trescothick.

"Buttler got a brilliant hundred during the week and really showed the talent we all know he's got.

"It's not quite come through enough in all of his cricket. We've seen him in one-day cricket really be destructive so it's no surprise to see here what he's done.

"Pollard's going to fly back home tomorrow and then fly back here in a couple of weeks but we don't mind him doing that. He's pleased as well, he enjoys coming back to play for us."
