Tim Bresnan admits England are "sniffing a win" heading into the final day of the second Test against Bangladesh.

England took three wickets on the fourth evening to leave Bangladesh 95 runs ahead on 172 for six. Bresnan and company therefore aim to see off the hosts' remaining wickets before knocking off a modest target tomorrow.

Bresnan, who resumed on 74 this morning before eventually reaching 91, insists his failure to make a century in his second Test was not a major disappointment.

"The hundred was obviously important but getting 90 runs for the team was more important, especially today and yesterday as well," he told Sky Sports 1.

"I supported Belly (Ian Bell) well with the fightback. He led it and played unbelievably well on a pitch which is difficult to score on if they bowl straight, which they did."

Bresnan added: "Hopefully we can get four quick wickets, they are only 90-odd on so yes, hopefully we're sniffing a win."
