First Team Injury Update: Daniel Sams & Dan Lawrence


After a week’s break in the fixture schedule, the Eagles head into another busy period of matches with four Vitality Blast games over an eight-day period.

Sussex Sharks are the visitors to The Cloud County Ground on Friday evening and the return of Daniel Sams will boost Simon Harmer’s team selection.

The Australian missed the fixtures against Hampshire Hawks and Middlesex due to illness but is back in contention after his return to training this week ahead of the home matches at Chelmsford on Friday and Sunday.

Dan Lawrence is continuing his rehabilitation after sustaining a hamstring injury against Lancashire in May and is working towards a return to the matchday squad before the Vitality Blast group stage fixtures conclude in early July.
