Derbyshire are guaranteed to finish bottom of
the County Championship for the first time in six years after failing to take the final two wickets they needed to beat Leicestershire.
After declaring on their overnight score of 286-8, Leicestershire were set an unlikely target of 347.
The hosts looked on course when, after Mark Cosgrove (110) and Paul Horton 61) had gone, the Foxes slipped to 242-8.
But Rob Sayer (32 not out) and Richard Jones saw them to 301-8.
Tony Palladino’s 4-64, which took him to 38 Championship wickets for the season, proved in vain while Leicestershire ended just 46 short of victory after an unbroken 59-run ninth-wicket stand.
Bottom club Derbyshire were denied a first win of the season and the only side they could catch, Glamorgan, defeated newly-crowned Division Two champions Essex.
Leicestershire complete their season with a home game against Glamorgan at Grace Road, starting on Tuesday, Derbyshire travel to Worcestershire having extended their unwanted county record of “wooden spoons” to 16.
