American duo JB Holmes and Kyle Stanley hold a one-shot lead over the chasing pack heading into the final round of the Players Championship at Sawgrass.

Holmes shot a two-under-par 70 to climb above joint-overnight leader Louis Oosthuizen at the top, while Stanley remains at the summit alongside his compatriot on nine-under for the tournament with a round of 72.

Oosthuizen slipped down to third, sitting one stroke back on eight-under, and Kim Si-woo is in fourth after carding a solid four-under-par on Saturday.

England's best hope of success is Ian Poulter, who stays in a tie for fifth with a bogey-free 71 - his one birdie coming on the second hole.

Masters champion Sergio Garcia fired a strong round of 67 to make it to five-under, meanwhile, leaving him within three of the leading duo heading into Sunday's final session.
