The tourists reached 251/5 in pursuit of 504 thanks to Ben Stokes' 72 not out - his maiden Test half-century - and Ian Bell's 60.

But their defiance still looks certain to be in vain with Australia just 1/20 with Sky Bet to complete victory on day five and regain the Ashes.

With 253 runs needed on a ground where runs have come quickly, the draw is now seen as less likely than an England win and is 25/1.

Australia's five frontline bowlers have a wicket apiece in the England innings, with Mitchell Johnson 13/8 favourite to go on and take most wickets in the innings, ahead of Ryan Harris at 9/4 and 7/2 chance Nathan Lyon.
