A good performance in the main so far this match, after two successive good results against Sussex and Lancashire. Hopefully the 2nd innings collapse yesterday was just a blip as overall momentum seems to be building. I think today could be a make or break day for us in the CC this season. Win and we're genuinely in the hunt for a promotion place (who'd have thought a few weeks ago). Lose and we're virtually out of it as Durham, Middlesex and Derbyshire will all put a points gap btween them and us.
I don't blame Derbyshire for playing aggressively as it seems the best chance of getting a score on this wicket. Having said that, it's clear that it comes with risk. With 5 wickets to take we should be favouriates to win today, but ......... COME ON NORTHANTS!
