The WACA, Perth

England face a monumental task to avoid defeat in the third Ashes Test in Perth after slumping to 81-5 in pursuit of an improbable victory target of 391.

A Mike Hussey century and 95 from Shane Watson lifted Australia to 309 all out in their second innings on day three.

Steve Smith added a handy 36 and Chris Tremlett took a five-wicket haul.

Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris both struck twice as England lost their top five batsmen cheaply, leaving Australia on the brink of squaring the series.
