Captain Steven Mullaney was pleased with the efforts of his bowlers as the green and golds attack tuned up ahead of Saturday's Bob Willis Trophy clash against Derbyshire.

Jake Ball, Tom Barber, Peter Trego and Joey Evison all drew praise from the skipper after positive contributions on an opening day which Nottinghamshire spent in the field.

As roles are reversed heading into the second day, Mullaney is looking for batsman to put down a marker and make meaningful contributions against a strong Leicestershire bowling line-up.
