Durham retain high hopes of recording their first LV= County Championship win of the season despite rain cutting the third day of their clash with Warwickshire.
The hosts will head into Friday leading by 227 at Chester-le-Street with three second-innings wickets in hand, meaning all three results remain possible.
Play ended at 2.30pm on the third day with Durham on 147-7, Paul Collingwood unbeaten on 29 having overcome a nasty blow to his right hand administered by Bears paceman Chris Wright
The former England batsman shared in a crucial unbroken 31-run stand with Scott Borthwick (15 not out) after five wickets had been lost in the morning session.
Nightwatchman Jamie Harrison survived for 75 minutes to make 23 before becoming a maiden first-class scalp for 19-year-old all-rounder Tom Milnes.
The frontline batsmen failed to show the same kind of application as Harrison, Ben Stokes departing for 14 while Varun Chopra took slip catches to see the back of Dale Benkenstein and Phil Mustard.
