2 showed 10-15 with either 4M and 5+C or 6+C. 4 was an amorphous game force.

After due consideration you decide to lead your singleton (would you?).

Declarer pauses, then wins the A on which partner plays the UDCA 5 and declarer the 2. Declarer continues with the 7 to the 4, Q and your 3. The K is led, you win the A, dummy pitches a , and partner follows with the 9. Partner's club play is consistent with a doubleton. 

Your play.
