Sussex suffered a second home defeat – despite a gutsy effort from Ollie Robinson.

The night-watchman, who has been feeling unwell, made 55 and helped Stiaan van Zyl take the county - who were 59-3 overnight chasing 437 - to within one ball of surviving the morning session unscathed.

But a spell of 4-0 in 16 balls by Ben Raine either side of lunch sent them spinning to defeat by 196 runs.

Raine took a career-best haul of 6-27 as Sussex were dismissed 30 minutes after tea on the final day for 240.

Apart from Robinson (55), only Stiaan van Zyl (48) and Chris Jordan (44) offered the necessary resistance.

Raine took six wickets at Hove for Leicestershire last season and he showed his liking for the place again either side of lunch when he picked up van Zyl, Laurie Evans, Ben Brown and David Wiese without conceding a run.

Bowling up the slope and getting movement back into the right-handers, his telling burst came just when Sussex harboured hopes of batting through the final day and saving the game.

Raine first struck three balls before lunch. Left-hander van Zyl had faced 188 balls for his 48 before nibbling at an away-swinger. His seven boundaries included four in five deliveries off left-arm spinner Liam Trevaskis.

Evans was caught behind off the next ball – the first after lunch – and in his next over Raine pinned Brown (1) and David Wiese (0) on the crease with late movement.

From 143-7, Sussex rallied through Jordan and Robinson, who shared 54 for the eighth wicket and used up 18 overs.

Robinson passed 50 for the sixth time in his career before his spirited resistance was ended by Chris Rushworth, who struck in his second over with the second new ball helped by a slip catch from the diving Jack Burnham at third slip for 55.

After tea, Raine switched to the Cromwell Road End to finish things off.

Jordan, who played well for his 44, edged a beauty which held its line to wicketkeeper Ned Eckersley and Aaron Thomason was held head-high at second slip by Bancroft, leaving Delray Rawlins 20 not out.
