Glos stumbling towards defeat

DAY 3 Close: Middlesex 342 & 273-7dec. require seven further wickets to beat Gloucestershire 210 & 55-3 (PTS: Midd 6 Glos 4)

Gloucestershire lost three wickets before stumps to place them on the verge of consecutive defeats on day three at Lords.

After Middlesex declared to set 406 to win, the visitors lost Rob Woodman cheaply, before Alex Gidman recorded a pair and Hamish Marshall again failed; the top order once again crumbling with the best part of four sessions to bat to save the match.

Some big partnerships are required to save the match, something Glos have failed to produce regularly this season, and from somewhere they have to produce rearguard action that none of the remaining batsmen are accustomed to.
