i'm stuck on this sudoku and can't get any further...

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,18209-1766100,00.html

this is my current position

Code: Select all
3  |   |5 2
 24|7  |869
   |  2|3 4
-----------
6  | 4 |728
482|967|153
73 |28 |496
-----------
  3|5  |687
 17|  6|945
  6| 7 |231


i've identified candidates in the other cells but i can't seem to find a technique for finishing this one off..

if someone could give me a pointer or tell me how to move forward i'd be appreciative. please don't post the solution!

Thanks in advance

thanks for pointing it out!

it would make things easier if posters referenced the puzzle they were having problems with wouldn't it?
