The Outlaws go into the match knowing a winis vital if they want to keep in touch of leaders Worcestershire, who handedthem a nine-run defeat last weekend.
And Clough expects spinners Graeme Swannand Rob Ferley to have a vital role to play, as they try to kick off the run offive victories they believe will be needed to finish top of the pile.
He said: "It's been a pretty frustratingperiod with the injuries we've had and the spinners have kept us in with achance in our matches so far.
"We have still been playing fairly well buthave missed the little bits of luck we needed here and there. If we stick at itthen things will turn our way again."
Clough's bowling has come in for some tapin the competition, with the all-rounder still wicketless after three matches.
But he showed his batting was still in goodtouch with 26 not out off 17 balls against Worcestershire and will also takeconfidence from his bowling in the Championship defeat to Somerset, with matchfigures of 4-82, including Justin Langer twice.
He added: "It was nice to get some wicketsagainst Somerset and to be playing Championship cricket again.
"The fact I haven't got any wickets in thePro40 doesn't bother me - in one-day cricket there are days when you bowl welland get hit, and others where you bowl badly and get the wickets.
"I've got every confidence in myself and itwould be great to do well on Sunday."
