Sweden's Alex Noren will take a three-shot lead into the final day of the 2016 British Masters after he shot a faultless 65 to move to 16 under par at The Grove, Hertfordshire, England, on Saturday.

Friday's overnight leader, England's Richard Bland, birdied the last hole to card a two-under round of 69 and move into second place on his own on 13 under.

Hanson's 66 was also blemish-free, as was Wiesberger's, whose last bogey of the tournament came on the fourth hole of his opening round.

A quick start will be necessary on Sunday if any of the chasing pack are to catch Noren, and there are plenty capable of such heroics.
