    A STUBBORN INNINGS OF 76 NOT OUT BY GEOFF BOYCOTT HELPED ENGLAND FORCE A DRAW AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) IN THE FOURTH TEST MATCH AT JOHANNESBURG.

    LEFT WITH FOUR HOUR'S BATTING AFTER SOUTH AFRICA HAD DECLARED 313 RUNS AHEAD, ENGLAND LOST THREE WICKETS FOR 33 RUNS. HALF THE SIDE WERE OUT FOR 106 WITH A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR LEFT. BUT ENGLAND HELD ON TO FINISH AT 153 FOR SIX.

    BOYCOTT STOOD FIRM, BATTING THROUGHOUT THE ENGLAND INNINGS FOR HIS HIGHEST TEST SCORE OF THE TOUR.

    TO THE DELIGHT OF THE 4,000-STRONG CROWD, TREVOR GODDARD, SOUTH AFRICA'S CAPTAIN, COMPLETED HIS FIRST CENTURY IN 62 TEST INNINGS IN THE MORNING, SCORING 112. GRAEME POLLOCK (65 NOT OUT) AND COLIN BLAND (38 NOT OUT) HIT THE ENGLAND ATTACK HARD IN AN UNFINISHED FOURTH WICKET STAND OF 96. GODDARD DECLARED AFRICA'S INNINGS CLOSED AT LUNCH.

    (TEST SCORES: SOUTH AFRICA - 390 FOR SIX DECLARED AND 307 FOR THREE DECLARED. ENGLAND - 384 AND 154 FOR SIX.)
