Gidman out of Middlesex clash

Gloucestershire will be without their skipper, Alex Gidman for today's county championship match against Middlesex at Bristol.

The all-rounder failed to recover from a back spasm that ruled him out of Tuesday's Friends Provident quarter-final, leaving the Shire with the choice of Anthony Ireland or Gemaal Hussain as the final bowler, with Kadeer Ali expected to fill Gidman's batting slot.

Glos have James Franklin back from international duty, which will be a major boost to the line-up as he will extend the batting which saw a long tail-end in his absence.

The last five meetings between the sides have only seen one result, however, the Shire's performances in those fixtures will need a great improvement if they are to achieve a positive outcome from this encounter.
