Worcestershire 255-6 (Clarke 117 not, Cotton 3-46, Milnes 2-46)
Not a bad effort today by a young Derbyshire attack, keeping things tight and under three an over all day.
They might have hoped for greater success after opting to bowl, but a fine century by Joe Clarke, one of the county circuit's finest young batsmen, kept them at bay.
Tony Palladino bowled beautifully all day and finally got a deserved wicket before the close, but Ben Cotton and Tom Milnes took the lion's share of the wickets and we will hope to strike early tomorrow and limit the first innings to under 350.
If they can do that, there will be few complaints - then it is up to the batsmen to do their stuff.
More from me tomorrow.
