Edgbaston (final day): Middlesex 297 (E T Smith 85, E C Joyce 60, D L Maddy 4-25) & 335-7 dec (B A Godleman 87, S D Udal 66 no, E J G Morgan 51 no, O A Shah 50) v Warwickshire 438 (T Frost 90, I D K Salisbury 81, A G Botha 50, I J L Trott 50).
Warwickshire (12pts) drew with Middlesex (8pts)
Middlesex veteran Shaun Udal denied Warwickshire a chance of victory on a tense last day in the LV County Championship Division Two clash at Edgbaston.
The 39-year-old former England spin bowler, who held up the battle-weary hosts with an unbeaten 48 in the first innings, rectified a major collapse in a match-saving stand with Eoin Morgan.
After losing four wickets for 35 in the first 12 overs of the afternoon, Middlesex were only 77 ahead until the eighth pair staved off defeat.
With Udal on 66 and Morgan reaching 51, they put on an unbroken 117 and took their struggling side to a draw.
Middlesex were able to declare at 335 for seven - a lead of 194 - but Warwickshire could be proud of their efforts with only three specialist bowlers after injuries to Darren Maddy, Monde Zondeki and Ian Salisbury.
For most of the morning it seemed that Middlesex would have nothing to worry about as teenager Billy Godleman reached his highest score launching his Championship career last season with a century against Somerset.
The England Under-19 left hander made 87 in nearly five hours and cleared a first innings deficit of 141 during a second-wicket stand of 124 in 42 overs with Owais Shah.
Ian Westwood, now captaining Warwickshire as Maddy faces a six-week lay-off with a broken thumb, rotated his limited bowling resources until paceman Jimmy Anyon made a breakthrough.
Shah went for 50, edging to wicketkeeper Tony Frost, and the game took another twist shortly before lunch with a lapse in Godleman's focus.
Having hit 13 fours from 214 balls, he aimed for something bigger when going down the pitch to Ant Botha but tamely dragged his shot to Jim Troughton at midwicket.
The door suddenly opened for Warwickshire when Jonathan Trott, responding to new responsibility as the third seamer, ducked one past Ed Joyce's defensive stroke for the first of four consecutive lbw decisions.
Vernon Philander fired briefly by driving Botha for six and four in the same over but then got his pads in he way as he played back to the left-arm spinner.
Anyon, who shouldered the heaviest workload in taking three for 111 from 36 overs, then struck twice as Ben Scott and Tim Murtagh were beaten by deliveries which kept a shade low.
One more wicket then may well have sunk Middlesex but Morgan, the Irish left hander, found some form at the right time, completing a watchful first half-century of the season after batting for 45 overs.
Udal's second 50 since his winter move from Hampshire was much quicker, taking 73 balls with six fours and a sweep for six off Botha
