First Team Coach Mark Robinson praised his side following their 106-run victory over Yorkshire.
The Bears headed into the important clash at Emerald Headingley, looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Hampshire at Edgbaston.
Having lost the the toss under thick cloud, the side led by Will Rhodes showed their grit and resilience to pick up 19 points and move second in the Division One table ahead of next week’s blockbuster final round, 3.5 points behind leaders Hampshire.
“It was hard to take last week,” said Robinson. “We know that was a game we should have won.
“We had three opportunities to win it and there’s always a danger you take that into your next game and there’s a hangover.
“But we showed great character in four days here as we’ve lost the toss and had the worst of the conditions, so to win by 100 runs in a low scoring game shows character and skill.
“We’ve put ourselves with four days left in the season to win the Championship and what more can you ask for.”
