Opener Stephen Moore impressed with an unbeaten century as Derbyshire piled on the runs on the second day of their LV= County Championship Division Two match against Hampshire at the 3aaa County Ground.
The former Lancashire batsman was 106 not out by stumps as the home side reached 203 for two, trailing by 125 runs after Hampshire were dismissed for 328 in their first innings.
Starting the day on 231 for five after a weather-affected first day, the visitors lost Kyle Abbott for a duck when he was bowled by Mark Footitt - his second wicket of the game in the first over of the day - but recovered thanks largely to a half-century from Joe Gatting.
Sean Ervine lost his wicket just five overs later - caught by Richard Johnson off Tim Groenewald - to leave Hampshire on 248 for seven as Derbyshire continued to attack.
Gatting, who began the day on 25, passed 50 and continued to cause problems before he was sent packing, caught by Chesney Hughes for Wes Durston's first wicket of the match.

Footitt trapped Matt Coles lbw for nine before Durston wrapped up the innings on 328 by ousting Michael Bates.
In reply, Derbyshire lost opener Billy Godleman early on to slip to four for one in the third over as James Tomlinson pinned him in front.
But Moore began to pile on the runs, reaching his ton off 178 balls in 227 minutes with 14 fours and one maximum.
Wayne Madsen shared a 106-run second-wicket partnership with Moore before he was stumped for 36 for Liam Dawson's first wicket of the match.
That brought Shivnarine Chanderpaul to the crease and, alongside Moore, the West Indies star reached 35 not out as Derbyshire saw out the second day in a strong position.
