Jason Gillespie, the Sussex Head Coach selected a 14-man squad for the match and commented:
“With the bat, we got a lot of starts without a big score and with the ball we gave them too many easy opportunities to score runs.
“We were out-hustled in the field, which is disappointing because that is something we pride ourselves on.
“We will look to be better at all those things against Essex. We know they will be a tough side to beat and are relishing the challenge.”
Anthony McGrath, the Essex Head Coach, is aware that the Eagles have to win their remaining two matches if they are to have a chance of reaching the knockout stages, against the Sharks today and Kent Spitfires, at Chelmsford, on Wednesday.
“These two matches are Cup Finals really and for me, it’s about getting consistency in our performance,” he stated. “If we do that, the results will take care of themselves. We’ll go into the match against Sussex with the confidence we got from beating Glamorgan and the template we used and if we reproduce that on Sunday, I think we’ll be absolutely fine.”

As far as the match prediction is concerned, Sussex are all but out of the One Day Cup this year and will be playing for pridein front of their home supporters, whilst Essex have to win their remaining two matches if they are to have a chance of reaching the knockout stages. So it's going to be a great contest.
My pick for today's match prdiction - Essex to win, they will want this more than Sussex.
