Jon Culley at Nottinghamshire 124-2 v Derbyshire
After cutting Derbyshire’s lead to 67 overnight, Nottinghamshire’s plan is to bat all day, which they feel will give them enough runs and use up enough time to make it difficult for the visitors to pull off their first win for two years, although they will feel leaving here with a draw is akin to a victory given the gulf between them in the Division Two table. Wayne Madsen, the former captain, says the addition of Conor McKerr to their bowling has given the rest of their attack a lift but on a wicket that has become flatter each day they will need to bowl particularly well to get the eight wickets they need to give themselves a chance of winning. In the first 90 minutes they haven’t managed one although Notts have added only 57 runs for a lead of just 10.
