Western Australia were struggling to hang on in their second innings after Darren Pattinson ruined their opening effort with an amazing 8 for 35. Pattinson started the day with four wickets and quickly doubled his tally as the hosts were dismissed for 190, leaving them 339 behind Victoria's 529.

The career-best figures of Pattinson, who played a Test for England in 2008, came from 15.3 overs and he chipped in late in the day as the Warriors followed-on. The locals were looking comfortable until Damien Wright had Adam Voges lbw and Pattinson removed Mitchell Marsh the same way. They ended up limping to 5 for 271 at stumps on day three, needing 68 to make Victoria bat again, with Luke Pomersbach the key man on 28.

Western Australia began well with Michael Swart's swift 104 - he hit 17 fours and two sixes - and he was supported by a cautious 53 from Wes Robinson. However, the middle-order troubles continue for the Warriors.

In the first innings Pomersbach (54) was the only one to post a half-century before he fell to Pattinson. The last five wickets went for 29 and the tail will have to improve as well if they are to help save the game on the final day.
