Middlesex bowler Ethan Bamber was happy to contribute as Lancashire lost late wickets at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
The hosts slipped from 253-3 to 282-8 at the close, for a lead of 211 heading into the final day.
And Bamber picked up the scalps of Liam Livingstone and Dane Vilas in that spell, as Miguel Cummins (4-50) also had success.
Bamber said: "It's been a long day but that last session gave us some rewards for our efforts.
"I thought the other pace bowlers were outstanding and I thought Toby Roland-Jones (1-63) was really unlucky not to pick up a wicket in that last spell.

"It was nice to contribute with a couple of wickets, especially as I didn't do my job as well as I hoped to do in the first innings and it was a better feeling walking off the ground tonight. I love the responsibility of being given the new ball.
"I think the way we've battled shows the fight there is in the dressing room and the commitment we all have to winning games for Middlesex."
