Match scorecard

The match between Derbyshire and Gloucestershire looks destined for a draw after poor weather struck again on day three at Derby.

Persistent rain meant there was no play until 16:10 BST, with the visitors resuming on 21-0 in reply to 278.

Mark Footitt took 2-28 as bad light restricted the day's action to just 17.5 overs, Gloucestershire having stumbled to 66-4 at the close.

They are still 212 runs behind heading into the final day.

BBC Radio Gloucestershire's Bob Hunt:

"Gloucestershire can feel hard done by. The few overs that were played were done so in light to the south of murky.

"Chris Dent obviously couldn't see the ball that dismissed him and now his side are battling to get any remaining bonus points on offer."
