521 xxx x39
xx3 2xx x54
9xx 53x x28

xx7 xx5 413
xx9 xxx 865
35x 6xx 972

x95 x4x 286

Only two cells in the bottom-centre block can possibly be a 2 or a 6 (the centre and bottom-right ones) so you can eliminate other candidates in these two cells because they must be 2 and 6 (one way round or the other). This leaves only one 9 in the 6th column (2nd cell down)... good luck with the rest of it!
