While Derbyshire's lead in this game isn't in all likelihood an outright match-winning one and they may well have to bat again, 141 runs of an advantage is always going to make you favourites in a cricket match.
Tomorrow we will need to get Owais Shah early and probably James Foster too, but there is enough talent in this Derbyshire side to take wickets at regular intervals and complete a memorable win sometime tomorrow. The weather isn't likely to be an issue, so we don't need to panic. With the wicket offering increasing turn we'll not want to chase too many, but I would be surprised if it is much more than a hundred, if that.
A few players gave it away today, but Wes Durston confirmed his talent and role as senior professional with another dazzling century at close to a run a ball. Wayne Madsen was, by all accounts, seen off by a poor decision, but the innings floundered, perhaps unnecessarily, until Tom Poynton gave us a first glimpse this season of his ability with the bat.
Those who saw him at Chesterfield last summer will know Poynton can bat, and centuries for the Second XI have confirmed that. Today his dazzling fifty gave us a bigger lead than looked likely and a position from which we should - note, should - go on and win the match.
I'm sure we'll see a repeat of the Wes 'n' Wainers show tomorrow as the spin option appears the best route to success here. It was so nice to listen to Radio 5 at 4.30 today and hear them refer to "table-topping Derbyshire again doing well." To quote Bruce Springsteen, its been a long time comin' - but mighty enjoyable all the same.
It has been another impressive performance by the county so far - if we can finish it off tomorrow, we will have opened an impressive gap at the top of the table.
I think we will, so watch this space...
