British number one Kyle Edmund advanced to his third quarter-final of the season by beating Moldovan Radu Albot in straight sets at the Grand Prix Hassan II in Morocco.

Second seed Edmund, who made the last eight at the Brisbane International and the Australian Open in January, overcame an untidy start to win 6-2 6-4.

Neither player could hold their serve in the first three games, but Edmund converted three break points to take the opening set in under 39 minutes.

And he sealed the match in the second set with a deep volley that forced an unforced error from Albot.
