Peter Trego was unable to find the necessary support at Lady Bay as Nottinghamshire fell 71 runs short in their Second Eleven Championship game against Leicestershire. 

Notts went into day four requiring 241 runs for the victory with nine wickets in hand having dismissed the visitors for 279 on day three, and lost the wicket of Matthew Montgomery in the evening session.

Skipper Trego accumulated 87 of the required runs in a three-hour knock, but only Ben Compton (45) could provide the resistance to help build a partnership, the pair put on 78 for the third wicket and helped the hosts climb to 121 for three after the early loss of Sol Budinger (17). 

Abidane Sakande struck with three wickets in four overs to ensure Notts’ could not rebuild any momentum after the loss of Compton, the seamer snared Dane Schadendorf (3), Kashif Ali (1) and Toby Pettmen (7) in quick succession to reduce Notts to 138 for seven. 

James Hayes settled in for 57 balls to help his side, but when Trego was caught by George Rhodes, the die had been cast, and the Green and Golds were eventually bowled out for 195.
