World number three Rory McIlroy is three shots off the lead heading into Sunday's final round of the Abu Dhabi Championship after a two-under-par 70.

Northern Irishman McIlroy, 26, mixed five birdies with three bogeys to go 10 under for the tournament, which has been affected by fog delays.

American Rickie Fowler, ranked sixth in the world, tops the leaderboard after shooting 65.

Joost Luiten of the Netherlands carded a 68 and is two shots off the pace.

The fourth round is due to be completed later on Sunday.
