The home side go into the match just four points behind leaders Middlesex as they chase a third consecutive County Championship title. Jason Gillespie’s men were frustrated in their previous outing as they drew away at Hampshire in a rain affected match. Here we look at three previous meetings at Headingley, with both teams having a balanced record, winning one each and drawing the other.

STAT ATTACK

* White Rose batsman, Alex Lees goes into the game needing 84 more runs to reach 1000 runs for the season while bowler Jack Brooks needs 5 more wickets to to take his total to 50 wickets.

* Yorkshire must be wary of the threat posed by Durham batsmen Keyton Jennings who currently sits top of the batting totals with 1262 runs.

* Former South African batsman Dale Benkenstein is the only Durham batsman to score a century at Headingley in the last five years.
