Chester-Le-Street:Graham Onions took two wickets in three balls as England moved closer to winning the second and final Test against the West Indies here at the Riverside on Sunday.
The tourists, following on, were 115 for three in reply to England's first innings 569 for six declared at stumps on the fourth day.
That left them still needing a further 144 runs just to make England bat again on Monday's final day, with the hosts now all but assured of regaining the Wisden Trophy they'd lost in the Caribbean earlier this year after their 10-wicket win in last week's series opener at Lord's.
Onions, who at Lord's took seven wickets on Test debut, removed first innings century-maker Ramnaresh Sarwan for 22, the batsman plumb lbw as he shuffled across the crease.
Two balls later the Durham quick gave his home crowd something else to celebrate when he had West Indies captain Chris Gayle caught at first slip by England skipper Andrew Strauss for a blistering 54.
"It was great day for us today picking up 10 wickets on a good batting pitch," said England pace bowler Stuart Broad, who took three for 62 in the West Indies' first innings.
"Seven wickets tomorrow (Monday) is in our sights, we've got to be ruthless enough to take that."
But Sarwan said he was confident the remaining West Indies batsmen could keep England at bay.
"We just need to concentrate. If we apply ourselves we will be able to draw the game."
Left-handed opener Gayle, who in the build-up to this match made no secret of his preference for Twenty20 as opposed to Test cricket, had blazed away as if this were a one-day game, his fifty coming in just 39 balls with two sixes and six fours.
Key batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul was 18 not out when bad light forced an early close, having overtaken Vivian Richards's mark of 8,540 runs to become the West Indies' second highest scorer in Tests behind Brian Lara (11,912).
Lendl Simmons was unbeaten on three.
Paul Collingwood, England's best outfielder, deputised as wicket-keeper for the final session Sunday after Matt Prior left the field with a finger injury.
However, X-rays showed no break and Prior was expected back behind the stumps on Monday.
James Anderson, now England's senior pace bowler, had earlier taken five wickets in an innings for the sixth time in his 37 Tests.
The 26-year-old Lancashire quick, who routed the Windies top-order on Saturday, finished with figures of five for 87 in 26.3 overs as the visitors were bowled out for 310.
Anderson, who'd reduced the West Indies to 94 for three overnight, wrapped up the innings when he had Denesh Ramdin caught in the slips by Graeme Swann for 55.
Ramdin, together with Sulieman Benn, who made a Test-best 35, shared an eighth-wicket partnership of 70 which only ended when the 6ft 7in spinner was run-out by Kevin Pietersen's direct hit from mid-on.
Fidel Edwards had peppered Anderson when the latter batted as a nightwatchman in England's innings
Anderson tried to return the favour but became distracted in the process and it was left to Stuart Broad (three for 62) to have Edwards caught by Strauss.
West Indies were 188 for five at lunch after Broad had dismissed Chanderpaul and Sarwan and by the time Benn came in they were 216 for seven.
Sarwan made exactly 100 before he gloved a well-directed Broad bouncer to Tim Bresnan, running round from gully, shortly before lunch.
Chanderpaul had been his usual patient self while batting for more than two hours after being dismissed for a golden duck and four by Swann at Lord's.
But Broad, bowling from around the wicket, dismissed him for 23 when the left-hander prodded at a full-length ball that cut away and was caught behind.
England's total owed much to an eight-hour Test-best 160 from opener Alastair Cook, who with Ravi Bopara (108) put on 213 for the second wicket.
