Dhawan battled hard to make 37 before being dismissed by Joe Root as India slipped to 112 for four having been set a target of 445 to win.
With Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma at the crease, Dhawan says that a big partnership is required first thing tomorrow.
"Yes it's going to be a bit hard but we are going to look forward to building up a big partnership and of course England is in a good position at the moment," Dhawan said.
"We're going to do our best to build a big partnership and spend time in the middle."
Talking about his own dismissal, caught at slip of the occasional off-spin of Root having survived a testing spell from James Anderson, he said it was all part of the game.
"Frustrating. Still that's part of cricket. You know, sometimes you do good, sometimes you do bad.
"If you ask me about myself, I'm just working hard and giving my best and you cannot do much about when you get out on good balls and you have to accept it.
"The fast bowlers are bowling good lines and length too."
