Anthony Gibson intimating SD has a back injury, albeit he appeared to walk off unaided, without any obvious sign of pain.

Unless it is a bad injury, certainly hope he can resume his innings later, perhaps with a runner.

No idea who would keep wicket for us in the second innings, if SD can’t do so. Perhaps GB or EB ?

Really disappointed with Lewis’s batting this season. He has the ability to comfortably average 30+, yet no sign of anything at all this year yet.

We are still very much in this game though.

Good job Tom has started to bowl - though that is assuming that he gets some runs as well. Have we sorted Lewis' contract yet?

What's happened to Abbott, and to Steve Davies?

Ankle Abbot. Foot Davies. According to the BBC and the Somerset website.

Looks like curtains for table-topping Notts. I wonder if their supporters suddenly see them facing a season long struggle....

A second successive very good batting contribution, at a time when the team was under the pump, from Craig Overton.

Great to see.

Agreed AG - might even get a decent lead on first innings with a bit of luck !

Well played James Hildreth and Overton. More to come?

Well played Hildreth, great ton, and of course Cove in support.

Leachy rules.

Well, 89 ahead with three wickets remaining is a position we all would have taken at the start of the innings I'm sure. It looked a bit dodgy for a while but Hildreth, Cove, Davies and Leach have turned it around.
Push it past 350 tomorrow (is 400 too much to hope for?) and then put some real pressure on their batsmen.

Once again a batsman stands up (it has happened more this year) and the tail has stood with him once again. Well done JH plus Craig and Jack. Excellent end to the day.

Play about to restart (at 6.18pm)

Edit - that didn't last long, 11 balls and 4 runs added.

I think we'd have all settled for that at the start of the day, even if Somerset did seem to make hard work of it when they batted. Nearly a hundred lead, three wickets still to fall. You'd have to think that a lead of over 100 would put all the pressure on Hampshire, especially if the Somerset bowlers get it right early in the Hampshire second innings. Here's hoping (and you'll note there's no counting of chickens, only an unusual amount of optimism for me. At the moment, anyway...!).

I think that's basically how County Championships are won.

It's what that amazing Warwickshire side of Dermot Reeve's did time and time again to win those titles 20 years ago. They had Lara, we have Hildreth, and everybody, but everybody, finds some way of contributing and getting the team over the line every game, even if they've made a mess of things to start with.

THe Warwickshire side of more recent vintage under Ashley Giles that won it did the same thing.
