Bruff (4th) v Navan (6th), Kilballyowen Park
Bruff have a seven point lead over 5th place Midleton and ten over visitors Navan. Another win this weekend should see them in the top four.
Navan’s two recent draws – Tullamore and Kanturk – have cost them field position as it were, and while they will still mount a challenge they need to win on Saturday to keep it realistic.
Hard to call. Two points in it the last time.
Old Crescent (1st) v Kanturk (7th), Rosbrien
A five point lead at the top of the table for Old Crescent as we approach endgame.
More of the same is what is called for as they have been fairly consistent in performance levels all season.
A seven point winning margin back in September. The Limerick side would take that come final whistle.
Sligo (10th) v Boyne (8th), Hamilton Park
Survival of the fittest is the order of the day in Strandhill on Saturday afternoon.
Sligo gleaned some light from an unexpected draw against Wanderers last month but they need this one even more.
Boyne were 32 – 13 winners in the early season. A tough weekend for Sligo ahead.
Tullamore (2nd) v Dundalk (9th), Spollanstown
The perfect game for Tullamore or a banana skin? Both really as the two clubs need wins for very different reasons.
Tullamore are five points off the top and will want to make their end of league clash with Old Crescent a final of sorts.
Dundalk need to stay ahead of Sligo or they face relegation.
Wanderers (3rd) v Midleton (5th), Aviva Stadium Back Pitch
A draw and a three point win over two relegation battlers have been Wanderers’ last two results.
They’ll take the win but they need a performance if they are to ensure they are in the mix for the playoffs.
Midleton are seven points behind the Bruff in 4th place. A loss on Saturday would put an end to their hopes.
