With only eight matches in the competition,Newell believes a side can only afford two defeats at most if they want tochallenge for top spot.

Notts got their campaign off to a flyingstart with a convincing victory over Warwickshire Bears but then lost toHampshire Hawks on Wednesday.

Newell has emphasised the need for animmediate response to his troops and said: "There's not a lot of room for errorand we know we must get a run of victories under our belt.

"I don't mind the competition beingcondensed in that way, as it should increase the intensity of the matches andtherefore the quality.

"We've done well in the season withouttaking the final step that would see us claim some silverware in one-daycricket.

"You only have to look at the narrow gapbetween teams at the bottom of the table last year to realise how the littlethings will count."

Worcestershire are top of Division One withtwo wins and a wash-out from their opening three matches.

Phil Jaques, Vikram Solanki and Graeme Hickhave all been in the runs in the competition but Newell added: "We had a goodwin at their place in the FPT early in the season and will look to repeat thatperformance.

"They've got some talented batsmen but sohave we, and it should be an exciting, high-scoring match."
