The top four appears to be sewn up in Division 2B with an 11 point gap from Greystones in 4th to Armagh in 5th but there’s still time for a late change in fortunes.

Seapoint (10th) v Greystones (4th), Kilbogget Park, Friday Night Lights, 7.30pm
A local derby to light up your Friday night in Kilbogget Park. The home side seemed certain to playing in Division 2B next season.
Greystones are level with Highfield but the Cork club have a better points difference and with a game in hand.
Should be an interesting game under lights.
Armagh (5th) v City of Derry (1st), Palace Grounds
A last shot at a top four slot for Armagh? It could be but it won’t be easy as they entertain the divisional leaders.
That said, Dungannon sprang a surprise in the last round of games to add a little spice to the run in.
Anything can happen in an Ulster derby but you’d expect Derek Suffern’s men to come back fighting.
Bective Rangers (9th) v MU Barnhall (6th), Donnybrook
A must win for Bective if they are to make the relegation battle any easier. They are three points behind Rainey who have a game in hand.
MU Barnhall are comfortably mid table but that should not lower their ambitions for a strong late season surge.
Bective’s defence has been their downfall this season. They need to shore things up or it will be a difficult end game.
Dungannon (7th) v Highfield (3rd), Stevenson Park
Just to prove that you can take nothing for granted, Dungannon duly did the rest of the division a favour by beating City of Derry a few weeks ago.
More importantly it kept them in 7th place and out of the danger zone. Can they repeat it against Highfield?
The Cork side are well placed if they take the points on Saturday.
