Australia batsman Mike Hussey says his side would have a clear psychological edge over England if it can force a draw in the second Test at Adelaide.

Hussey battled to put on 104 runs with Michael Clarke before his vice-captain fell to Monday's last delivery from Kevin Pietersen, meaning that England need just six wickets on the final day to win the test with the home side still 137 runs behind. The left-handed batsman admitted the wicket left the Australian dressing room downbeat, but believes with a bit of luck in the middle and some help from the weather conditions, a draw is still possible.

Hussey says "we fought pretty hard today" but adds that "it was a real kick in the guts to lose that one in the last over."
