Worcestershire won a very tight match by 2 runs. Needing 213 the visitors missed out by the smallest of margins.
They started the day on 94/5 and it was always going to be tight, Leach continued his good game with the ball taking 4/72 for 11 in the match. Simpson nearly guided Middlesex home with the tail but it just wasn't to be.
Glamorgan v Derbyshire
Derbyshire 256 (Reece 68, Palladino 58, de Lange 4/81) & 315 (du Plooy 100, Madsen 68, Hughes 59, Salter 3/62)

Result – Derbyshire won by 149 runs
Points – Derbyshire (21), Glamorgan (3)
Chris Cooke made a fabulous century, but that was just a side note here today, as Derbyshire wrapped up the win.
They managed to stay ahead almost throughout the match and will be happy to take the points home with them. Hudson-Prentice took 3-50 and Conner’s 3-53 as the two young seamers dominated.
Leicestershire v Durham
Leicestershire 324/9dec (Horton 67, Hill 62, Dearden 59, Raine 5/82) & 232 (Hill 55, Wood 4/80, Stokes 3/12)
Durham 301 (Lees 123, Eckersley 50, Ackermann 3/60) & 258/9 (Eckersley 63, Taylor 3/60)
Result – Durham won by 1 wicket
Points – Durham (22), Leicestershire (6)
Durham got over the line in the closest of finishes. Needing 31 to win when Rushworth joined Wood for the last wicket Leicestershire would have fancied their chances.
They hadn't banked, however, on the composure and clean striking of the last two to see their team over the line.
Earlier Eckersley had put Durham seemingly on their way with 63 but when he fell a small panic ensued but eventually they made the runs in what turned out to be a thrilling game.
Nottinghamshire v Sussex
Nottinghamshire 295 (Duckett 83, Broad 50, Robinson 4/89) & 306 (Patel 79, Nash 79,Slater 57, Archer 4/81)
Sussex 269 (van Zyl 56, Ball 8/89) & 167 (Haines 61, Broad 6/78)
Result – Nottinghamshire won by 165 runs
Points – Nottinghamshire (21), Sussex (5)
Stuart Broad took 6/78 as Nottinghamshire got the job done against Sussex. Sussex started the day requiring a further 258 runs to win on the last day but Broad and Jake Ball soon dampened any chance of that happening.
They took regular wickets, Ball taking 11 in the match. Tom Haines top scored with 61 but they never looked like they were going to maintain any sort of challenge as Nottinghamshire gave themselves an important win.
