County Championship Division Two: Matthew Potts stars with career best-figures in Durham win

Matthew Potts was on fire for Durham while Sam Robson's second hundred in as many games was enough to preserve Middlesex's place at the top of the County Championship Division Two standings

Young fast bowler Matthew Potts showed new England captain and Durham teammate Ben Stokes just what he can do as he picked seven second-innings wickets to guide the side to a 58 run win over Glamorgan.

Potts was the destroyer in chief on the final day on Sunday, picking up five wickets to go with the two he picked up on Saturday evening to end the innings with figures of 7/40.

Together with his 4/61 in the first innings, the 11/101 represents his best bowling figures in the County Championship and the first time he has taken 10 wickets in a game.

Glamorgan collapsed on the final day on the final ball of play on day three when, at 65/2, Marnus Labuschagne was caught behind off Ben Raine.

What followed on day four can only be described as an abject failure in their bid to reach the 196 set for them to win, being briskly bowled out for a paltry 137.

Durham 311 (Stokes 82, Petersen 78) and 249 (Borthwick 90, Lees 61, Neser 4-57) beat Glamorgan 365 (Root 88, Neser 62, Carlson 53, Northeast 51, Potts 4-61, Raine 4-61) and 137 (Potts 7-40) by 58 runs

Sam Robson's bat keeps Middlesex on top

Sam Robson's second hundred in as many games, coupled with some inclement weather, was enough to secure Middlesex a draw against Nottinghamshire and secure their place at the top of Division 2.

Notts set Middlesex a mammoth target of 515 after declaring their second innings on 295/5 on day three.

But Robson's knock of 101, supported by a gritty 18 off 115 balls by Max Holden, kept the Middlesex bowlers at bay.

They were given a solid helping hand by the weather too after the game was cut short at 12:30 by rain.

Middlesex 195 and 133 for 3 (Robson 101*) drew with Nottinghamshire 415 and 295 for 5 dec (Mullaney 100*, Clarke 66*, Fletcher 51)

Worcestershire navigate final day with ease

Despite a ton of scoreboard pressure, Worcestershire opener Jake Libby held his nerve to score a superb 105 to earn his side a draw against Derbyshire.

Derby would've fancied their chances early on Sunday in conditions that look like they might favour the bowlers.

However, the day progressed much as the rest of the game did with the batters dominant throughout.

Libby starred but Azhar Ali also scored an impressive 60 in a long 48-over partnership with Libby as the contest petered out to a draw.

Worcestershire 368 and 225 for 2 (Libby 105*, Ali 60) drew with Derbyshire 565 for 8 dec (Dal 114*, Masood 113, Guest 77, du Plooy 62, Thomson 54)
