Mikko Ilonen takes a two-shot lead over Sweden's Alexander Noren into the final round of the Nordea Masters as he seeks to end a six-year winless drought on the European Tour.
The 33-year-old Finn shot a 7-under 65 in wet conditions on Saturday to move to an overall 18-under 198 on the Bro Hof Slott course.
Noren posted 8-under 64 for an overall 200.
The 114th-ranked Ilonen, whose last Tour victory was winning this event in 2007, capped his round with back-to-back birdies at Nos. 13 and 14. He then eagled the par five 15th where his short wedge shot into the green spun back into the hole.
''It was a great run of three holes,'' Ilonen said. ''I need to shoot another low score and I know I can do it.''
Ilonen finished second this year in both the Hassan II Trophy in Morocco and the China Open.
The 30-year-old Noren is also hoping to end his winless drought since victory at the Nordea Masters two years ago.
