Gloucestershire's Australian all-rounder took four for 20 with his guileful medium pacers as Middlesex was bowled out for 119 to give mark Mark Alleyne's men a County Championship Second Division victory by an innings and 59 runs.[an error occurred while processing this directive]Australia One-day specialist Harvey had a memorable match - he earlier made an unbeaten 130 out of 400 for three declared. Across the River Thames, First Division champions Surrey saw its hopes of landing a third successive title ultimately extinguished as it went down to Glamorgan by three wickets.It was Surrey's first Championship defeat at its Oval headquarters since former England seamer Steve Watkin took four for 28 as Surrey was bowled out for 141.Chasing 200, Glamorgan got home for the loss of seven wickets although Surrey spearhead Martin Bicknell did his chances of a belated England recall no harm with his second five-wicket haul of the match. In all he took 11 for 117 but Surrey is now one place off the relegation zone.Elsewhere in form Kent batsman David Fulton fell three runs short of a double century as his side drew with Northamptonshire at Wantage Road.Back in the Second Division Nottinghamshire comfortably beat Worcestershire by 61 runs at Trent Bridge despite a determined 42 for the visitors by Australia pace bowler Andy Bichel.
