    An exciting final round awaits at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open with South Africa’s Dean Burmester two shots behind after a solid 68 on Saturday.

    England’s Aaron Rai leads the way after finishing the third round on eight under par with a one-shot lead over Australia’s Maverick Antcliff.

    But Burmester, who has been playing brilliantly all week at the Galgorm Resort, will fancy his chances after going two under on Saturday.

    The 31-year-old rolled in three birdies throughout his composed round, while dropping a single shot on the 16th hole.

    Burmester will start Sunday’s final round on six under par for the event and in T3 alongside Thailand’s Jazz Janewattananond and Sweden’s Oscar Lengden.

    Countryman Justin Harding also stayed in the hunt and could be set for a big final round after finishing his third round on four under after a consecutive 69.

    Wilco Nienaber will have some catching up to do and be eager for a strong finish on Sunday after concluding moving day on four over par, while George Coetzee is a further stroke back on five over.
