SOMERSET require 165 runs to win on the final day of their pre-season match with Worcestershire at Taunton.

The hosts declared on 184-8 at the start of Tuesday's play - with Jamie Baird finishing on 17* and Josh Davey 11* - and Worcestershire were dismissed for 238 in their second innings.

Lewis Gregory made the breakthrough, pinning Daryl Mitchell (1) lbw, but the visitors progressed up to 40 runs before losing their second wicket.

It had been 18-year-old Sam Baker who had shone with 3-22 in Worcestershire's first innings of 116, and here it was Ned Leonard - also 18 - who stepped up.

Tom Fell (10) was his first victim, and when Davey removed Jake Libby (43), the away side were 84-3.

Jack Haynes (57) and Brett D'Oliveira (35) put on a solid fourth-wicket partnership, however, taking their side up to 140, at which point Leonard struck again to have Haynes caught by Gregory.

He removed Riki Wessels (15), too, and when D'Oliveira was clean bowled by Tom Abell it left Worcestershire on 175-6.

Abell followed that by having Gareth Roderick (0) caught and bowled, before Ed Barnard (39) took the fight back to Somerset.

It was 20-year-old spinner Lewis Goldsworthy who dealt the final blows, dismissing Joe Leach (4) and then Barnard to end the visitors' innings.

Leonard ended with figures of 3-27 off 11 overs, while Abell took 2-47 off nine and Goldsworthy 2-9 off four.

There were only three overs left in the day, and Somerset ended it on 6-0, with Eddie Byrom (2*) and Tom Banton (4*) at the crease.
