England bowlers chip away at New Zealand top order as they chase massive score.
Two wickets to Graeme Swann and another to Stuart Broad have put England well on top at the tea break on the fourth day, with New Zealand 68-3.
England again won the session as they dismissed three top-order players with the pitch beginning to show uneven bounce for the fast bowlers.
Swann also came into the game, as he bowled with excellent control and he was given some help off the pitch as he aimed for the footmarks.
New Zealand started their second innings needing what would be a world record title of 468, after Alastair Cook declared with his side on 287-5.
Jonathan Trott was dismissed soon after the lunch break for 76 as Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow chased quick runs, with the pair making 28 and 26 not out respectively.
Kane Williamson finished with the best figures for the visitors as he snared 3-68.
With such a massive target in front of them, it was simply a case of survival by any means necessary for New Zealand, who added 21 for the first wicket before Peter Fulton was dismissed for five off the bowling of Stuart Broad.
Swann then came into the game as he got rid Williamson for just three in identical circumstances as the first innings, leg before wicket.
Not even the video umpire could save the Kiwi number three after a review, with Hawkeye showing the ball going on to hit most of leg-stump.
Just before the tea break, the visitors suffered another loss as Swann (2-17) got rid of Hamish Rutherford for 42.
Ross Taylor (9no) and Dean Brownlie (3no) will resume their innings after the break with the weather not showing any predicted signs of rain at Headingley.
