Siddikur shot a third round -3 under par 68 to get to the top of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open leaderboard, and will take a one shot advantage into the final round tomorrow with his -7 under par total.

He is fighting for his maiden European Tour win, and said he will not let the pressure get to him;

“I am very inspired to play tomorrow now that I am in the lead. I won’t put pressure on myself.”

I really enjoyed my round today, it was a very special day for me.”

“I am very excited and I will try to enjoy myself tomorrow, one more day to go, nothing’s going to change.”

“I’ll just try and play the same way as I did for the last few days. I am looking forward to playing in the leader group again tomorrow.”

“The highlight today and possibly the highlight for me so far this week was on sixteen.

“I had a great drive and I hit my second shot with my three wood from 225 yards into the wind from left to right before sinking an eight-footer for birdie.”

“That was by far my best birdie for the week.”

Last weeks maiden Tour winner, Jeunghun Wang, is in second place, just one shot behind at -6 under par. He carded a third round -1 under par 71 on another tough day in Mauritius.

Andrew Dodt, who started the day with a three shot lead, and Nicolas Colsaerts, who is aligned with the Four Seasons club, share third place at -3 under par.

Andrew collapsed on the back nine, eventually signing for +5 over par 77, while Nicolas, who knows the course backwards, struggled all day, he signed for +1 over 73.

Scott Hend is the only other player below par for three rounds, he has fourth spot on his own at -1 under par, he got there with a -3 under par 69 today.
