With ten wickets remaining, the White Rose require another 319 runs for victory and Plunkett is hopeful that his new Club can record their first win of the season if they apply themselves on day four.
“We’ve got a lot of strong batters in our team, and we’re due some runs,” said Plunkett.
“If we can come out and play positive, hopefully we can knock that off.
“It’s a massive first session isn’t it. The thing is with Durham, you can get a massive partnership and then wickets go in bangs. It can go bang, bang, bang and you’re three down. It can look flat when two people are in, but it still nibbles around. We’ve got to come out and be positive from the word ‘go’.
“It’s going to be a massive day. Hopefully we can get a win to put us in good stead for the rest of the year.
“This score has been knocked off plenty of times in county cricket before. We’re going back to the hotel in a positive frame of mind.”
