James Sykes had a day to remember as Leicestershire bowled Derbyshire out for 309 in the Championship game at Ashby Hastings CC.
The slow left armer returned terrific figures of 7-80 from 31.2 overs, including six maidens, as the visitors were dismissed in 97.2 overs after electing to bat first.
That left Leicestershire four overs to bat and Angus Robson and Harry Bush negotiated that tricky spell as County closed on 19-0.
Richard Johnson's quickfire 87 (72b) and a score of 70* from Chris Durham were the highlights of the Derbyshire innings.
After Alex Wyatt (20-7-46-2) and Sykes reduced Derbyshire to 59-3 with Billy Godleman (1), Paul Borrington (33) and Ben Slater (18) the men out, Johnson shared 102 for the fourth wicket with Scott Elstone (28).
The wicket-keeper's 50 included seven fours and two sixes and came from just 31 balls but Charlie Taylor (7-0-36-1) broke the partnership in his first over as he had Elstone caught behind by James Middleton.
Sykes then ran through the middle and lower order in a tremendous display of spin bowling as number six Durham was left stranded. The other bowling figures were: Ollie Freckingham 0-45 (16), Ben Raine 0-34 (11), Tom Wells 0-28 (7) and Ben Collins 0-25 (5).
