One late thought...

For what its worth, Gloucestershire's decision to enforce the follow on could just be the route back into the game for Derbyshire.

I can understand the psychological advantage of forcing a team to do so early in the season with a young attack, but if - and based on our first innings its a big if - we can leave them chasing 200-plus in the last innings it would be a challenge.

Tomorrow we need to see all the batsmen get their heads down and graft. The Gloucestershire tail showed that you can bat on this wicket and the openers have at least done the first job in seeing off the new ball.

Hopefully they can bat for much longer tomorrow.
