Gareth Maybin is six shots off the pace at the European Masters in Switzerland after firing a one-under-par 69 in Saturday's third round.
The Ballyclare player carded three birdies and two bogeys at Crans Montana to lie 10 under for the tournament.
Belfast's Michael Hoey is four under after a 73 and 12 shots behind leader Graeme Storm of England.
Peter Lawrie's superb 62 left him on nine under while Padraig Harrington is one under following a 72.
Maybin, 33, lies 124th in the Race to Dubai standings and is currently some £27,000 behind the 110th spot which will secure a European Tour card for next season.
