Glamorgan all-rounder David Lloyd says they will have to bowl more accurately on day three against Leicestershire.

The home side reached 202-1 on day two, in reply to Glamorgan's 513-9 declared.

But Lloyd at least had the chance to relish a maiden half-century in first-class cricket as the batsmen held the upper hand again.

"To get in there and get some runs... lifts something off my shoulders and hopefully I can get more runs in the future," said Lloyd.

"It means a lot, it's been a bit up and down so far for me [in the first team]."

North Walian Lloyd, 22, is playing in his ninth first-class match after making his debut at the end of the 2012 season.

He admits Glamorgan's attack would have wanted a more productive time on the second day.

"We started off the day pretty well, to get 500 was good for us, but on the bowling side we'd like two or three more [wickets] and not as many runs," said Lloyd.

"But hopefully if we get a couple of wickets in the morning early then it can change straight away - we're still in the game."

Lloyd says the Welsh county's bowlers did not make the most of some occasional variable bounce.

"There's a bit in there if you bowl it in the right place, but we didn't really seem to find the right channels," he added.

"If we come back and hit good areas then hopefully there'll be a bit more. So fingers crossed.

"Hopefully Dean [Cosker] can get going and we can all work round him."

Glamorgan's last visit to Grace Road in April 2014 ended in a high-scoring draw after the home team reached 500 batting first.
