Harvey Hosein, Ben Cotton and Will Davis return from injury and are named in Derbyshire’s 13-man squad to face Gloucestershire at The 3aaa County Ground.

Hosein, who has been unavailable since the end of July with a broken finger, returns to take over the gloves from Alex Mellor, who has returned to Warwickshire following the conclusion of his loan spell.

Pacemen Cotton and Davis are also in contention to make their first Specsavers County Championship appearances since mid-July.

Charlie Macdonell retains his place in the squad after promising knocks with the bat, and Tom Milnes will look to continue his good form with the ball after taking 11 wickets in his last two outings, including best figures for Derbyshire of 6-93 in the game with Essex.

Gloucestershire sit in sixth place in the Specsavers County Championship Division Two, with three wins from their 12 games this season.

They will be without the dangerous overseas player and top order batsman, Michael Klinger, after he returned back to Australia last week due to injury.

Gloucestershire will benefit from the current form of Hamish Marshall, who scored a fifty and 118 in their last game with Kent.

With the ball, Liam Norwell and Craig Miles will be the away side’s main threats, having taken 34 wickets and 32 wickets this season respectively.

Gloucestershire squad to face Derbyshire: Gareth Roderick, Chris Dent, Will Tavare, Hamish Marshall, George Hankins, Phil Mustard, Jack Taylor, Craig Miles, David Payne, Liam Norwell, Matt Taylor, Josh Shaw
