Derbyshire's teenage wicketkeeper Harvey Hosein equalled the record for the number of catches in a Championship match against Surrey at The Oval.

The 18-year-old, who took seven catches in his first innings behind the stumps in first-class cricket, claimed another four scalps in Surrey's second innings.

After the visitors had established a lead of 29 early on day two, Surrey struggled to 114-5 in response.

Jason Roy hit 81 as they were all out for 279, leaving Derbyshire 251 to win.

First-class debut 'unreal' - Hosein

Roy, who was awarded his county cap on Monday, and Arun Harinath (42) put on 122 for the sixth wicket to swing a low-scoring game slightly in the hosts' favour.

The 24-year-old Roy - whose 86-ball innings included 13 fours - was aiming to reach three figures for the second consecutive Championship match, having made 103 in last week's defeat at Worcestershire, a result that ended Surrey's chances of winning promotion.

He also became the fourth Surrey batsman to pass 1,000 first-class runs in 2014.

Earlier, the visitors added 46 runs to their overnight score of 164-5 to reach 210 all out.

Captain Wayne Madsen top-scored with 63 to pass 1,000 first-class runs for the second season in succession.

Ben Cotton (2-46) did early damage in Surrey's second innings, dismissing opener Rory Burns and the experienced Vikram Solanki to leave the home side 24-2, while Hosein became the seventh wicketkeeper to claim 11 dismissals in a Championship match when he caught Gareth Batty off the bowling of Mark Footitt.
