Armagh (5th) V MU Barnhall (6th), Palace Grounds
Two clubs with with plenty to aim for still in Division 2B. Armagh are just three points adrift from the top four while MU Barnhall are a further six points back.

That puts the onus on the visitors whose recent outing against Highfield yielded a losing bonus point.

Armagh’s form has been patchy – a 6 all draw with Seapoint in their last game.

Dungannon (8th) v Rainey OB (9th), Stevenson Park
Both clubs still have a game in hand over teams ahead of them in the table so Saturday’s clash is a key one in getting out of the relegation zone.

Dungannon’s last outing was a loss to MU Barnhall while Rainey earned a losing bonus point at home to Divisional leaders City of Derry.

Home advantage will help Dungannon but Rainey could pull of a coup.

Greystones (4th) v City of Derry (1st), Dr. Hickey Park
Greystones step up to the plate this weekend in an effort to knock City of Derry off their stride.

They have won one and lost one since the turn of the year but this is certainly their toughest ask yet.

That said they only lost by 20 – 17 in Judge’s Road last October. An upset on the cards?

Seapoint (10th) v Highfield (2nd), Kilbogget Park
Seapoint’s draw against Armagh last week yielded their first positive result this season.

It won’t take them out of the relegation zone but it is something to build on.

On Saturday they face a Highfield side that beat them 14 – 3 in October.

Sunday’s Well (3rd) v Bective Rangers (7th), Irish Independent Park
The Well are unbeaten since September – when they lost their three opening games – and sit just a point behind Highfield in the table.

Bective’s form is patchier and with two teams behind them in the table having games in hand they are in a precarious position.

A home win for the Well.
