Ireland coach Graham Shaw is upbeat on his team's chances of avoiding relegation at the Women's EuroHockey Championships in Amsterdam.
The Irish had already missed out on a semi-final spot before a 5-1 defeat by pool winners Germany on Tuesday and they drop into the fifth-eighth place relegation pool.
Ireland will face Czech Republic on Thursday and Spain or Belgium on Saturday - the bottom two sides will be relegated to Division Two.
