Somerset concede first-innings deficit of 89 but hit back to dismiss visitors cheaply

Somerset 268 (Bartlett 55, Finn 5-77) and 104 for 4 need a further 103 to beat Middlesex 357 and 117 (Overton 5-34)

Craig Overton and Josh Davey sparked a dramatic Somerset resurgence on the third day of the LV= County Championship match with Middlesex at the Cooper Associates County Ground.

When the home side could add only 90 to their overnight score of 178 for 4, Steve Finn finishing with 5 for 77, they conceded a first-innings lead of 89 runs. But Overton, with 5 for 34, and Davey, 3 for 28, skittled Middlesex for just 117 in their second innings, leaving a victory target of 207. By the close, the hosts had posted 104 for 4, with skipper Tom Abell unbeaten on 43.
