Middlesex's fixture with Somerset at Uxbridge ended in a tame draw, while there was heartache for opener Nick Gubbins.

Full match scorecard

Gubbins missed out on a first first-class century in only his fourth innings for Middlesex when he was run out on 95 during a terrible mix-up with Paul Stirling.

Stirling himself made a rapid 60 not out as the hosts set-up a declaration on the final day, blazing six fours and a six in a 45-ball knock - his second 50 of the match.

But, with a target of 390 never likely to be chased down, Somerset held their nerve to secure a draw.

There was a slight wobble when they found themselves 61/3 but, as in the first innings, Nick Compton and James Hildreth were the thorn in Middlesex's side with a partnership of 93.

Ravi Patel got Hildreth for 60, but Compton battoned down the hatches and was 83 not out when the captains shook hands on 203/4.
