England’s Lee Slattery will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the Czech Masters.

Slattery carded a third-round 67 at Albatross Golf Resort to finish 12 under par, with South Africa’s Haydn Porteous his nearest challenger on 10 under after a matching 67.

Sweden’s Pontus Widegren is two shots further back on eight under.

Halfway leader Chris Hanson is a further stroke adrift alongside fellow Englishman Jonathan Thomson.

Hanson had led an English one-two-three after the completion of the delayed second round, the 32-year-old playing 17 holes in five under par to add a 66 to his opening 68.

That gave him a three-shot lead over Slattery, and birdies on the first two holes of round three quickly took Hanson four shots clear.

However, driving into a hazard on the sixth cost Hanson a double bogey and when he dropped another shot on the eighth, Slattery took full advantage with birdies on the seventh and ninth to move into the lead.
