Good afternoon. Lancashire might still win this, it's the final session at Old Trafford. A good afternoon has meant that following-on, Surrey are 103-4 at tea, still trailing by 101 Sensible money would back the draw, but you never know

Burns and Stoneman did stick around this morning, before both went for 33 and 29 respectively after lunch. When we restart again Foakes is 18 not out, with Pope on 7. Lancs have bowled really well, Bailey 2-5 off 10 overs, Clark (1-25) and Livingstone (1-33) taking the other wickets.

Here we go, we've players back. Bailey bowling the first over of the final session. Wins for Somerset and Notts already today in Division One. More of the same so far. Iron-fisted discipline in the bowling. Pope gets a single in the legside. 104-4

Onions bowling from the other end, Pope pushes a quick single, there's a bit of width for Foakes, and he punishes it by cutting for four! 109-4 (57.3)

Vilas makes a good stop, replacing Alex Davies who got injured yesterday. 109-4, trail by 95 (58)

Just a single for Pope who drives Bailey through the covers. Bailey continues his excellent bowling, Foakes not being able to get on the variation, save for a few defensive shots. 110-4 (59)

Couple of inside edges from Pope, the last one manages to find its way to long leg for a single and deny Onions a maiden. 111-4

Bailey continues, a Pope single to long leg once again, Foakes adds a couple to the total as well coming across the stumps. 114-4, trail by 90

Onions continuing - NOOOO! Pope should have been gone, caught behind but Vilas drops a simple catch. That was a chance, make no mistake. It is a maiden at least. 114-4 (62)

Well played from Foakes getting a couple off Bailey, whose line may not be quite what it has been. 116-4
