Glamorgan hope to get their County Championship promotion hopes back on track against Division Two leaders Lancashire at Colwyn Bay.

The Welsh county are 47 points behind the visitors and 39 points behind Surrey, with a game in hand.

Former Glamorgan captain Alviro Peterson could face his old side.

Lancashire are set to include the division's top run-scorer Ashwell Prince and leading wicket-taker Kyle Jarvis.

Glamorgan are looking to recover from their opening championship defeat of the season in the last round, losing to Essex by 248 runs at Chelmsford.

Lancashire won the team's last meeting at the Rhos-on-Sea ground in 2013 by just 14 runs, as Glamorgan collapsed dramatically against the spin of Simon Kerrigan to be bowled out for 139.

"It was a really good game of cricket last time at Colwyn Bay," Lancashire batsman Paul Horton told his club's website.

"We didn't deserve to win the game, but we did.

"It's a club wicket in effect. Southport was the same. They can produce really good contests.

"There can be a little bit in it for the seamers, but if you get in, batters can be hard to dislodge. It can spin towards the end, too.

"Colwyn Bay will probably be the same again. It was nice to get over the line last time we played them, and hopefully we can replicate that this time."

Lancashire squad: Steven Croft(c), Tom Bailey, Karl Brown, Glen Chapple, Jordan Clark, Alex Davies(w), James Faulkner, Paul Horton, Kyle Jarvis, Simon Kerrigan, Toby Lester, Arron Lilley, Alviro Petersen, Ashwell Prince.
