I am a little tight for time tonight, so will make this preview short and sweet.
I don't really expect David to slay Goliath tomorrow. Let's be honest, our moneybags neighbours should be walking this group with the players that they have. It could be argued that with the players they have they should be more disappointed with their fortunes than we are with ours. Their top six or seven are largely internationals and they are not delivering the goods.
By the same token, Derbyshire look to have a decent side out and, if they play to potential and with the added incentive of wounded pride, we should make them know that they have been in a game.
It just needs someone to produce that special performance to put them under pressure, just as Wes and Ches did in that ten-over thrash at Trent Bridge.

Nottinghamshire's squad is as follows:
Ball, Carter, Christian, Fletcher, Gidman, Gurney, Hales, Lumb, Mullaney, Patel, Smith, B Taylor, J Taylor, Wessels, Wood.
I will be back tomorrow, when hopefully I will have more time. My expectations are to be reporting on a defeat, but I will gladly take an improved performance against such opposition.
In closing: Luke Fletcher: is he stalking us?
