Gloucestershire ended day two very much in the driving seat for a third straight win, despite a rally from Paul Nixon and Matt Boyce after tea which saw the visitors comfortably to the close but still with a large arrears.

Another devastating spell with the ball propelled the home side to a commanding lead. Again, all of the bowlers contributed, pressure was maintained and a young Leicestershire batting line up didn't have the necessary determination to stop the deluge of wickets. All 10 fell for just 74 runs.

However, the replied with a very spirited performance in what could have been a disastrous spell after tea. With plenty of overs to survive before the close.
