Sussex have taken two wickets this morning as their County Championship match against Surrey at Horsham remains finely poised.

Nightwatchman Stuart Meaker and Mark Ramprakash (37) have fallen as Sussex strive to force a result on the final day. Surrey were 39-1 overnight, and Meaker and Ramprakash added 22 runs before Steve Magoffin made the breakthrough when Meaker played on.

Ramprakash and Steve Davies put on 35 for the third wicket, which fell when Ramprakash was trapped LBW by Monty Panesar when attempting a sweep.

Sussex were left to rue a couple of dropped catches though, perhaps most tellingly when Chris Nash put down a sharp chance at short leg off Zander de Bruyn shortly before lunch,

Surrey will begin the afternoon session 129-3, still 98 runs adrift of Sussex’s first innings total.
