KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) Nacho Elvira took a big step towards clinching a first European Tour title after he fired a 6-under-par 66 for a two-shot advantage over David Lipsky after the third round at the Maybank Championship on Saturday.

Elvira has been on song since the opening round where he joint-led the standings, and the Spaniard maintained that consistency with seven birdies to reach 13-under in sweltering conditions at the Saujana Golf & Country Club.

Australia's Scott Hend, Maximilian Kieffer of Germany and Thailand's Jazz Janewattananond are in a tie for third at 10-under, with Ernie Els a further shot back.
