Modest England hero Matthew Hoggard insisted "every dog has its day" after his seven-wicket haul in the Second Test against Australia at Adelaide.
England finished day four on 59 for one, a lead of 97, after bowling Australia out for 513.
Hoggard said : "We bowled well as as a unit and I got the rewards for a good team effort.
"It was hard out there on a flat wicket but the body is remarkably fresh. Maybe tomorrow it will different. But we finished strongly."
Asked about his seven for 109, he said: "Every dog has its day and thankfully it was my couple of days. I hope I‘ve showed I‘m not just a bowler when it swings.
"It has been an interesting series but it was the same in 2005 and I expect some exciting cricket tomorrow."
Shane Warne was involved in several exchanges with England players as Australia resorted to sledging in in Adelaide.
Sky Sports reported that Warne branded England's Ian Bell ‘The Sherminator‘ - a reference to a red-haired geeky character in the film American Pie.
The broadcaster claimed stump microphones picked up Warne saying to Bell: "You don‘t like being called The Sherminator do you?"
Warwickshire batsman Bell is said to have replied: "I‘ve been called worse."
Sky also claimed Warne approached double-century hero Paul Collingwood and said: "You‘re no good."
Hoggard admitted it was "spicy" in the middle. He said: "That‘s natural. Australia are hurting - they lost the Ashes and have upped the intensity. To beat them we have to up our intensity. Yes, it was fairly spicy out there."
Australian Michael Clarke, who scored 124, warned England that Australia were still hopeful of a win. He said: "We certainly think we can win. Tomorrow will be a crucial morning and we are fired up and looking for quick wickets.
"It‘s starting to spin and that‘s good news for Warney [Shane Warne].
"It‘s been a long wait for my third hundred and I‘m proud it came against such a good team.
"We were under a little pressure early on but Adam Gilchrist played fantastic. We got a great score on the board.
"I think my opportunities are going to be limited so I had to make the most of them. I would have liked to have gone on but I‘ve put a case forward to the selectors."
England captain Andrew Flintoff has ‘a little discomfort‘ in his left ankle but he will take his place in the team on the final day.
