A superb spell by Australian seamer Steve Magoffin left Sussex within sight of victory against Durham at Arundel.

Magoffin took four wickets for just 14 runs in 10 overs as Durham collapsed to 80-7 in their second innings, leading by only 80 runs.

With James Anyon, Luke Wright and Kirk Wernars also among the wickets, only Durham captain Paul Collingwood (29 not out) prevented a total rout.

Sussex were earlier dismissed for 231 with Michael Yardy top-scoring with 66.
