MODEST England hero Matthew Hoggard insisted "every dog has its day" after his seven-wicket haul in the second Test against Australia at Adelaide.
Andrew Flintoff's team finished day four on 59-1, 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 be 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."
There were several exchanges between players in the middle and Hoggard admitted it was "spicy".
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."
But Aussie Michael Clarke, who scored a century, does not think that the match will necessarily end in a draw.
He said: "We certainly think we can win. Tomorrow will be a crucial morning and we are fired up and looking for quick wickets."
