Dubai - Alvaro Quiros will head into the final round of the Dubai World Championship holding a two-shot lead over Paul Lawrie of Scotland.

The big-hitting Spaniard shot a 2-under 70 in the third round on Saturday to total 14-under 202 on the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Lawrie eagled the 18th to hit a 66 and be one stroke ahead of 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizien of South Africa (66).

Top-ranked Luke Donald is fourth at 206 after shooting a 66. The Englishman is trying to become the first golfer to win the American and European money titles. Having won the American title, he must beat Rory McIlory in the Race to Dubai to wrap up the double.

McIlroy is tied for eighth at 8 under after a struggling 71.
