Highlights and reaction from Day Three at Headingley

Day Three reaction from Graham Onions

Lancashire's Graham Onions reflected on a disappointing third day at Headingley as the visitors endured a tough final hour against Yorkshire.

Earlier in the day, Yorkshire were bowled out for 272, leaving Lancashire a victory target of 230.

At the close of Day Three, Glen Chapple's side found themselves 109/7, still requiring another 121 runs to win.

"There's a lot of emotion, a bit of anger and a bit of disappointment. We're in a position we've been in all year where we've put ourselves massively on the back foot.

"Credit to Yorkshire, they've dug in. We bowled some pretty good balls at them today, and they've shown some real character.

"From my point of view, we've certainly not shown enough character.

"They've outplayed us in the two days. We won the first day, and they've won the next two.

"It's very, very disappointing.

"There's a couple of things. The batters don't mean to get out. They're training hard, but we're ultimately missing key moments in games that are putting us massively on the back foot - losing wickets in clusters.

"We just haven't got going at all, and it's disappointing because we have some good players in that dressing room.

"We've got to hold our hands up and be brutally honest - we haven't performed as well as we could have (this season).

"You have to show determination like Gary Ballance did, and we haven't been able to do that."
