Ireland women's hockey team played out a scoreless draw against Spain in their penultimate match of their four-game series in Terrassa.

The visitors looked the most threatening throughout the match in a game that was devoid of any penalty corners.

Deirdre Duke went close in the first 35 intercepting a Spanish outlet creating a one-on-one but the Spain goalkeeper denied the Irishwoman.

The only goal chances in the second half came from the Girls in Green, the best from Katie Mullan who went close with a reverse stick strike.

Ireland’s outfield players made life somewhat easy for Emma Gray in goals, who did not get a touch in the second half.

The sides are now level with a win each and a draw (Ireland 2-3 Spain; Ireland 4-2 Spain; Ireland 0-0 Spain).

Tomorrow's final game takes place at 10.30am (Irish time). 

Ireland's men will play their third and final match at 2.30pm tomorrow against Spain.
