Nottinghamshire fought back against Yorkshire on day two at Trent Bridge to revive their hopes of taking the County Championship with a game to spare.

Resuming on 260-8, the visitors were bowled out for 264, a lead of 205, with captain Andrew Gale unbeaten on 151.

Mark Wagh (90), Paul Franks (79) and Adam Voges (72) then took the hosts to 357-6 at the close, a lead of 152.

Notts will be crowned champions if they win and Somerset fail to defeat Lancashire at Taunton.

After 18 wickets had fallen on day one, it took Andre Adams just 13 balls to wrap up the Yorkshire innings and complete his third five-wicket haul in as many matches.

First, Oliver Hannon-Dalby was trapped lbw then debutant Moin Ashraf edged to third slip.

Following their dismal display on the first day, the Notts top order showed some gutsy application to take the home side into the lead for the loss of two wickets.

Franks shared a stand of 56 with Alex Hales for the first wicket, before adding 131 more for the second wicket with Mark Wagh.

When Franks fell, caught at slip off Adil Rashid, Wagh joined forces with Voges to take Notts in front.

But, with the pitch flattening out, there was to be another twist as Notts lost three wickets for 14 runs.

Wagh miscued Rashid to mid-on and Ajmal Shahzad produced some fireworks to account for both Samit Patel and Ali Brown.

Voges battled on, adding 38 with Chris Read, but fell to Hannon-Dalby four overs before the new ball was due.

But Read, dropped on seven by Yorkshire wicketkeeper Gerard Brophy, ensured there were no further alarms, seeing Notts to the close in the company of Darren Pattinson.

BBC Radio Nottingham's Dave Bracegirdle:
"In many ways it was a day of frustration for Nottinghamshire supporters because the batsmen showed all the fight and character that was lacking in the first innings.

"Having polished off the Yorkshire tail inside the first 10 minutes, they set about chasing a 205-run deficit.

"Paul Franks made a season's best 79 and coupled with 90 from Mark Wagh and 72 from Adam Voges, Notts put themselves in a position to make Yorkshire bat again.

"However, late wickets in the day saw the home side close on 357-6, an overall lead of only 152."
