City of Derry (1st) v Sunday’s Well (2nd), Judge’s Road
Winner takes all? Nearly. A home win decides the divisional winners and automatic promotion.

An away win gives the Well another shot at overturning the current 7 point lead.

It was 18 – 23 in favour of City of Derry when last they met. A similar result gives them the title.

Greystones (3rd) v Dungannon (7th), Dr. Hickey Park
Greystones slipped to 3rd place despite winning in the last round, they will want to make sure of their points again this weekend.

Dungannon have beaten City of Derry and Sunday’s Well in recent weeks so they cannot be taken for granted.

A home win but not an easy one.

Highfield (4th) v Armagh (5th), Woodleigh Park
Highfield got back to winning ways against Dungannon in their last match and with a game in hand over the three clubs ahead of them they pose a real threat.

Should they take the spoils at home on Saturday they could even climb to 2nd place depending on results elsewhere.

That said they won’t take Armagh as a gimme.

MU Barnhall (6th) v Seapoint (10th), Parsonstown
Mid table for MU Barnhall is a fair return for seven wins to date. Can they improve on it at the expense of Seapoint?

The Dublin side face automatic relegation on the back of a winless season to date. Time for them regroup and build for next season.

A home win.

Rainey OB (8th) v Bective (9th), Hatrick Park
This one is a real relegation dogfight. At present Bective face a playoff to stay in Division 2B.

An away win would offer them a lifeline – albeit a thin one as Rainey still have a game in hand and a better points differential.

Rainey’s win over Armagh is the stand out result in recent weeks for either side. A repeat performance should see them safe.
