I suspect if he only has three available seamers he'll choose NOT to enforce the follow on..
Rightly or wrongly - i'm not sure.
If he's only got three seamers, they ideally need to be fresh. Which points to batting again and bowling tomorrow morning, when Patto might be back - and the forecast is quite good.

But, they are still quite fresh, Durham are on the back foot and why take a chance with the weather.

Finely balanced: I will back whatever the captain and coach think.

May all be irrelevant if Onions and McCarthy continue at this rate

With a bowler missing we'd be mad to enforce the follow on.
I'm with you EYT. Bat for the bulk of today and give about 100 overs to the business of bowling them out.

Of course, not being there, I'll happily go along with whatever Gillespie and Moxon decide.

We do not know whether Patto will be back tomorrow so I think if we bowl them out soon, we should enforce the follow on, especially if there are weather uncertainties. Three good seamers rotating with Rafiq and maybe Lyth should be OK to do job.

Patterson missing is a blow to our hopes of enforcing the follow-on.
I hope he'll be able to return for us tomorrow.
For his sake as well as ours.
Let's just wish him well.

7 bonus points to Yorks, 4 to Middlesex - only 1 point behind!

Of course, a better result than them would make it irrelevant

Marty Emerson of BBC Newcastle, and Durham fan says 'go for the jugular' and put fragile Durham back in. But apparently Lees and Lyth sped off, so....

Last 10 overs 30/5 sounds like the new ball and/or wicket are doing their bit. Personally I'd ask them to bat again while conditions seem to be in our favour especially with Patto out and the others still relatively fresh but I bow to people with more knowledge than I'll ever have
