Glamorgan hope to end a nine-year home drought against Derbyshire as the Welsh county prepare for their first Swalec Stadium fixture of the season.
Glamorgan were defeated by 52 runs by Leicestershire in their first County Championship game of 2012 while Derbyshire beat Northants by 202 runs.
Coach Matthew Mott has recalled fit-again paceman Will Owen, back from back trouble, but bowler Huw Waters.
Glamorgan have won just one of their last 12 opening home fixtures.
Glamorgan squad: GP Rees, SJ Walters, WD Bragg, BJ Wright, MC Henriques, J Allenby, MA Wallace (c), GG Wagg, RDB Croft, WT Owen, DA Cosker, MT Reed.
