YORKSHIRE'S Specsavers County Championship match against Middlesex appears to be heading towards a draw at Headingley.

The hosts were bowled out for 358 during the first hour of day three, having started on 317-7, with Tim Murtagh striking twice.

Middlesex have since reached lunch at 53-0 from 17 overs in their first-innings reply.

Murtagh trapped Liam Plunkett lbw for 34 three balls into the day, before getting Ben Coad caught at first slip. James Harris later had Tim Bresnan caught at deep point for 44.

Sam Robson and Nick Compton then advanced to 21 and 28 not out by the interval with little to alarm them.
