A draw looks the most likely result at New Road after another rain-ruined day in the Division One relegation tussle between Worcestershire and Lancashire.

After the hosts resumed their first innings on 219-6, just two overs were possible before bad light stopped play.

A brief resumption saw overnight hero Neil Pinner depart for 82 before rain then ensured an even longer delay.

After the home side declared on 251-7, having gained an extra bonus point, Lancashire then closed on 10-0.
