Watch highlights from Day Four of the Specsavers County Championship fixture versus Northamptonshire at The 3aaa County Ground.

Northamptonshire won by three wickets with one ball to spare in a thrilling end to the first match of the season, as the visitors chased down the 326 set for victory.

Earlier, opening pair Billy Godleman (156*) and Luis Reece shared a 333-run partnership, setting the record for a Derbyshire opening stand in the county championship, which previously stood at 322 by Harry Storer and Joseph Bowden in 1929.

Godleman said: “I believe to learn to win you sometimes have to put yourself into positions where you may lose.

“It didn’t happen this game but firstly I believe we can win games without trying to set them up. We have the character and the quality to do so.”
