In reality, because of the fractured thumb sustained by Liam Livingstone on day one, Yorkshire need only three more wickets to win the Roses match at Old Trafford.Either way a result is in sight, though Lancashire's hopes realistically lie with Tom Bailey, who will resume on 38 not out alongside Graham Onions.Seamer Onions took 3-44 in the Yorkshire innings, dismissing Adam Lyth, Kane Williamson and Bairstow - who was dropped on 22 - while James Anderson had Root caught behind for just three.Lancashire's Dane Vilas recorded six dismissals in the innings, a total no wicketkeeper has beaten in the County Championship this season.
