England's just three wickets away from a first Test series win in Australia in 24 years, heading into the last day of the fifth and final Test in Sydney.
Having already won the Ashes and leading 2-1 in the series, England have Australia 213 for seven in their second innings still trailing the tourists by 151 runs, after England made a record 644 in their first innings.
The score, which gave England a first-innings lead of 364, was their highest ever on Australian soil.
Australia lost by an innings in Adelaide and again last week in Melbourne and now face a third drubbing by a similar margin.
England bowlers James Anderson, Tim Bresnan and Chris Tremlett have each taken two wickets each.
