Match Points. Partner plays D4, the declarer D2. 

Your next play.

Lets not go about critiquing the bidding 🙂 
All the possible match points on this deal at stake. Either a cold top or a cold bottom. 

 

We were playing standard signals, which means low from odd, high from even and high encouraging.  Also could add low discouraging.

The opponents weren’t playing all types of 4 level major openings showing shades of strength.

    You should shift to a small Spade or better still the Seven of Spades. It’s unlikely that the declarer will play the King from the dummy & will play the Jack. . Assuming partner has the Queen of Spades, he will win & shoot back a Spade.If the declarer has two Spades , you get a clear top , with one Diamond two Spade tricks.

    However poor opponents methods, they don’t not respond to 4nt unless they have a problem – a void.
    Its possible that declarer has a club void, but unlikely – your pd might’ve bid 5c over 4n with 7 of them.
    Given that, you can pretty much count declarer for 8h 2d 2c tricks. Only hope seems to be to find declarer with 4 diamonds. Play one and hope pd can ruff
