An unbeaten century from Brett Hutton held up Leicestershire on the second day of the Second XI Championship game at Lady Bay.
Notts started the day on 71-0 in reply to 218, slipped to 126-7 at one stage. But the home team staged a fine recovery to post 338 as Hutton shone (123*, 192). The batsman shared 104 for the eighth wicket with Max O'Dowd and 83 for the last with Luke Wood.
Seamer Ben Raine (23-9-34-2) got County off to the best possible start as he had Tom Rowe (17) caught at the wicket by James Middleton with the first ball of the day. The same combination accounted for Sam Kelsall (32) while the keeper also caught Sam Wood off Ollie Robinson (18-4-41-3).
Wicket-keeper Matt Cross (3) was bowled by Tom Wells (10.2-0-44-2) and the score was then 117-6 as Ollie Freckingham (13-4-44-1) had Adam Tillcock (1) caught behind. When Nick Langford was trapped lbw by Charlie Taylor (9-2-26-1) after making 34, Notts were in some trouble.
But O'Dowd made a patient 30 from 127 balls before becoming another victim of Middleton and Robinson, while Ben Phillips was caught by Ben Collins off James Sykes (25-11-66-1). L Wood was the last wicket to fall as Angus Robson took the catch at square leg off Wells.
Hutton's 50 came from 79 balls with seven fours and a six and the 100 was recorded from 155 deliveries with 13 fours and two sixes. The other bowling figures for Leics were: George Corbett 8-0-35-0, Collins 8-3-27-0.
Leicestershire negotiated 19 overs before stumps and moved to 40-0, a deficit of 80, thanks to steady knocks by Robson (21*, 55b) and Adam Waite (17*, 59b).
