Durham 503 for 8 dec beat Glamorgan 97 and 364 (Douthwaite 96, Salter 90, Rutherford 71, Coughlin 5-64) by an innings and 42 runs
Durham wrapped up a convincing innings-and-42-run victory over Glamorgan in their LV= Insurance County Championship clash, requiring only 10 overs to take the final three wickets on the final day at Emirates Riverside.
The visitors' stubborn resistance through Dan Douthwaite and Andrew Slater on the third day gave the Welsh outfit hope of avoiding an innings defeat. However, the late dismissal of Douthwaite the previous evening handed the momentum to Durham, and it did not take long for the home side to secure a dominant win.
Paul Coughlin dismissed Salter for a career-best 90 and then ended the contest by removing Michael Hogan after a Chris Rushworth wicket.
Coughlin enjoyed an outstanding return after a 13-week injury layoff, claiming his third first-class five-wicket haul and match figures of nine for 75. Durham moved up into third place in Division Two after securing 24 points from the game, while Glamorgan sit in fifth place.
Resuming on an overnight score of 333 for 7, Salter continued his grind in the early overs and moved past his previous career-best of 88 in his bid to further frustrate the hosts. However, he lost his discipline from the following delivery to edge behind to Ned Eckersley presenting Coughlin with his fourth wicket of the innings.
Rushworth then clean bowled Lukas Carey for a duck to allow the hosts to close in on victory. The final wicket fell to Coughlin, who found Hogan's outside edge before Eckersley produced a brilliant diving catch to his right to end the game.
