Derbyshire have frustrated Gloucestershire after lunch on the final day of the LV County Championship Division Two match at Derby.

Chasing 302 for victory from a minimum of 80 overs, Derbyshire were 63 for 4 five overs into the afternoon session but Billy Godleman and Shiv Thakor have guided the home side to 118 for 4 at tea.

Gloucestershire were well placed when David Payne took his third wicket by having Scott Elstone caught at point for 16 to reduce Derbyshire to 63 for 4.

But Godleman and Thakor have added 55 in 26 overs to leave Derbyshire requiring another 184 from 33 overs to reach their target.
