McGrath: Let's go up as champions
Yorkshire all-rounder Anthony McGrath believes the White Rose can finish the County Championship season in style.
The 36-year-old was the hero with the bat last week as Yorkshire boosted their Division Two promotion hopes with a thrilling two-wicket victory over Gloucestershire at Scarborough.
Yorkshire's season has been blighted by bad weather and it looked as if they were heading towards a 12th draw of a frustrating summer, before the two camps decided to engineer a result.
McGrath scored a crucial 76 not out as Yorkshire chased down 314 on an enthralling final day. The win moved Andrew Gale's side back into the promotion spots with just two matches remaining.
McGrath now has his sights set on overhauling leaders Derbyshire.
"Our main aim is to make sure we go up, whatever the position. But if we can do it as champions, that would make it all the more sweeter," said the former England man.
"We're 19 off Derby at the top, and they've got two really tough games. If the weather's nice and we get eight full days, you can't rule us out of catching them. We wanted it to be in our hands going into these last two games. That's what we've got."
Yorkshire face struggling Glamorgan at Headingley on Tuesday, before a trip to Essex in the final week of the season.
