James Taylor and Steven Mullaney missed out on centuries as Nottinghamshire were bowled out for 320 on the opening day against Durham at Trent Bridge.
The fifth-wicket pair put on 111 after Notts had slumped to 98-4 but Mullaney fell to Mark Wood for 80 and Taylor was caught behind for 97 off Gareth Breese to deny him his second hundred in a row.
Staurt Broad hit 46 to see the home side up to a third batting point and Graeme Swann - making his first appearance since leaving England's tour of New Zealand to undergo elbow surgery - was left unbeaten on eight not out.
Durham's seam attack impressed with Graham Onions (2-63) doing the initial damage with the new ball before Wood (2-58), Ben Stokes (3-58) and Chris Rushworth (2-62) took over.
Durham reached 34-1 in reply at stumps. Opener Mark Stoneman was trapped lbw by Ajmal Shahzad (1-1) for 30 in the penultimate over of the day.
Nightwatchman Rushworth (0no) joined Will Smith (3no) through to stumps.
England seamer Broad's three-over spell with the new ball cost 20 runs and he left the field early as a precaution with a tight groin, while Swann has yet to turn his arm over.
