Match scorecard

Neil McKenzie missed out on a century for Hampshire as Gloucestershire resurrected their chances of avoiding defeat on day three at Bristol.

Resuming on 104-2, the visitors looked to be in control at 218-4.

But McKenzie's dismissal for 94 led to Hampshire losing their last six wickets for just 58 as they were bowled out for 276, a first innings lead of just five.

Gloucestershire closed on 102-4, 97 runs ahead, after losing those four wickets in quick succession.

That mini batting collapse, coupled with a good final day weather forecast, means that promotion-chasing Hampshire will fancy their chances of forcing victory to keep up the pressure on leaders Derbyshire.
