Derbyshire took four wickets late on day one to reduce Durham from 226-4 to 254-8 at the close.

Ravi Rampaul (4-56) was the pick of the Derbyshire bowlers but it was Matthew Critchley's dismissal of Liam Trevaskis (40) that triggered Durham's collapse.

Rampaul soon followed that by trapping Jack Burnham lbw for 67 and there was still time for the visitors to claim two more wickets before stumps.

Earlier Durham had made a strong start thanks to 63 from opener Alex Lees.
