Yorkshire’s Matthew Revis said:
“We’ve put ourselves in a really strong position. Hopefully we can get out there and take some early wickets.
“I really enjoyed it out there. A lot of credit has to go to the way Lythy and Dukey played at the start the of the day. Both of them set a good platform for the lower order.
“He (Steve Patterson) just came out and told me to be positive. And that’s when I play at my best, when I’m looking to score.
“I would like to bat higher up in the future, hopefully. But the job I’m doing now, I’m really enjoying it.
“I think there’s a lot more in this pitch (than Northants away and Kent at home, both draws from winning positions on day four). That was shown tonight with Tommo and Patto getting it to kick. They bowled really well.
“There’s probably a bit more spin in the pitch for Bessy. Hopefully we can use that to our advantage.”
6.35pm – Close Play abandoned early, I’m afraid.
6.29pm We’re off for rain. Warwickshire are 57-3 in the 41st over. They trail by 148 with Hain on 19 and Rhodes 10. 7.5 overs remain in theory, but that might be it for the day.
6.26pm The floodlights are on with Warwickshire at 57-3 in the 40th over. Patterson and Thompson are in operation for Yorkshire at present. Eight overs remain after this. Hain 19 and Rhodes 10.
5.52pm Yorkshire remain on the hunt for wicket number four. Warwickshire are 54-3 in the 31st over, with almost 18 remaining. Hain 18 and Rhodes 8. The visiting deficit is 151. Headingley is bathed in evening sunshine, so it looks like we’ll get all the overs in.
5.22pm The Diamonds have fallen short chasing 127 against Vipers at Durham, losing by 11 runs. That’s two defeats in three for them now to start the Charlotte Edwards Cup.
5.12pm Warwickshire 41-3 from 19 overs, trailing by 164 with 29 overs remaining in the day. Patterson (0-15 from nine) has just been replaced by Loten. Revis has bowled a couple of overs from the other, replacing Thompson (3-16 from eight).
4.41pm WICKET Thompson gets Sibley caught at point by Bess off the shoulder of the bat, 14. Warwickshire are 25-3 in the 13th of 48 overs to be bowled today.
4.19pm It has just been announced over the tannoy that Yorkshire’s first innings has been recalculated from 450 to 449 and Patterson has been shorn of a run. So he finished on 18 and not 19. Warwickshire are 185.
Tea Report Yorkshire have taken a significant step towards an LV= Insurance County Championship win over champions Warwickshire at Headingley by breaking through twice in the Bears’ second innings.
A career best unbeaten 53 for Matthew Revis helped secure a first-innings lead of 206 with 14 overs remaining until tea, and Jordan Thompson then removed Alex Davies and Rob Yates, including the latter with the final ball of the session.
Warwickshire have reached the break at 20-2 after nine overs, trailing by 186 with 39 overs remaining in the day.
Yorkshire’s second innings advanced from 369-7 at lunch, with Harry Duke (48), Tom Loten and Steve Patterson (19) all falling.
McAndrew bowled Duke and Patterson, off and leg stumps out of the ground respectively. Sandwiched in between Loten inside-edged Oliver Hannon-Dalby to hand wicketkeeper Michael Burgess a fifth catch in the innings.
Revis reached 50 off 87 balls with a slog-swept six off Danny Briggs – his second career first-class half-century.
That came in the midst of a 58-run partnership for the 10th wicket with Patterson in only seven overs. Revis played particularly handsomely on the up off the front foot.
Thompson then struck in the third over of the Warwickshire second innings as Alex Davies softly chipped to Will Fraine at mid-wicket – 8-1.
Yates then lobbed another catch to Loten diving towards short mid-off.
Both wickets were miscues, suggesting the pitch has gone a bit two-paced.
4.03pm – Tea WICKET Last ball of the session, and Thompson has Yates caught by Loten diving towards short mid-off. It’s 20-2. Tea. 186 deficit for Warwickshire.

And further reading comes via our column with Diamonds batter Sterre Kalis.
Good morning from Headingley, where it is dry and overcast at present ahead of day three against Warwickshire.
Yorkshire have enjoyed an excellent two days so far – first with the ball on day one and then with the bat yesterday.
We will resume on 269-4 in reply to 244, with Adam Lyth unbeaten on 118. Harry Brook starred yet again with 82.
If things work out over the next couple of days, a second win of the season will be claimed to go into the break for the start of T20 in buoyant mood.
The players are about to start their warm-ups. Lyth is first out there, as usual, and has headed to the nets.
Ben Coad has actually been out there for half an hour or so dome some running as he builds up fitness following his hamstring and groin injuries.
