The Belfry, England:

Jeev Milkha Singh kept himself in contention at the British Masters with yet another solid show, carding a three-under 69 in the weather-interrupted penultimate round.

The seasoned Indian pro, who completed his final two holes on Sunday after being left stranded at the 16th due to darkness, has a total of seven-under 209 and shares the third spot with Spaniard Gonzalo Fdez-Castano (68).

Jeev is just three strokes off the pace of leaders New Zealand's Michael Campbell (65) and English Ryder Cup star Lee Westwood (68).

In a roller-coaster front nine, Jeev hit a birdie on the third, stumbled to a bogey on the fourth but made amends with a birdie on the fifth.

A bogey-birdie to his first nine holes meant that Jeev started his backward journey one-under.

The other nine turned out to be a flawless affair and Jeev picked up birdies on the 14th and 17th to round off another steady show.

In contrast, it was a horrendous day for the other Indian in fray, Shiv Kapur, who returned a six-over 78 to slide to the tied 56th spot with a total of five-over 221.

The 10th tee starter, managed just two birdies against a similar number of double bogeys and four bogeys.
