Match scorecard

Chris Dent hit 84 for Gloucestershire at Cardiff, but Glamorgan pegged the visitors back to 228-8 at the close.

Gareth Roderick fell early as paceman Michael Hogan claimed his 100th wicket in all competitions this summer.

Gloucestershire rebuilt to 132-2 before Dean Cosker dismissed Dent and Ian Cockbain, triggering a mini-collapse.

After Benny Howell (27) and Will Gidman (33) steadied the ship, they departed in quick succession before bad light ended play an hour early.

Little is at stake in the contest at Sophia Gardens with both sides certain to be playing in Division Two next season, while winless Leicestershire are already certain of the wooden spoon as the division's bottom side.
