Darren Pattinson made his return to match action as Nottinghamshire's second Eleven slipped to a one day defeat at Loughborough University.
Pattinson has stepped up his workload in recent weeks having been sidelined since his return to Trent Bridge with a stress fracture in his back.
The England international bowled five overs unscathed but couldn't prevent Notts suffering defeat by seven wickets.
Sam Kelsall (56) and Scott Elstone (70) were the mainstays with the bat in a total of 233/9 from fifty overs.
Loughborough eased to victory with four overs to spare.
