Boyne (8th) v Wanderers (4th), Shamrock Lodge
Promotion and relegation playoffs at stake in this clash in Shamrock lodge.
Boyne need to win to make sure they stay ahead of Sligo, while a Wanderers win would seal a top four slot.
The Dublin side won well back in September but their recent form against the bottom sides has been a problem.
Dundalk (10th) v Midleton (5th), Mill Road
Dundalk beat fellow relegation candidates Sligo back in January but it wasn’t enough to keep them from bottom spot.
The Co. Louth side need to win on Saturday if they are to give themselves a shot.
Midleton will keep their focus on this game but the result in Boyne will have an impact as the Cork side look to catch Wanderers – or at least take it to the last match.
Kanturk (7th) v Sligo (9th), Knocknacolon
This match could have a big bearing on relegation. Kanturk need a win just to be sure and if they do then Sligo stay in 9th at least.
The Cork side won big in the reverse fixture but this is the pointy end of the season.
A home win still the likely outcome.
Navan (6th) v Old Crescent (1st), Balreask Old
Nothing to play for except position for Navan but plenty at stake for the visitors.
They lead the table by five points and with an excellent points difference. They could clinch the title on Saturday or at least make it a racing certainty if they get the result.
An away win, but will be enough to seal the title?
Tullamore (2nd) v Bruff (3rd), Spollanstown
A big game and one which could also impact on the title and the top four placings.
Tullamore lead by seven in the table and they’ll have an eye on how Old Crescent do in Navan.
Tough to call but Bruff won 22 – 15 in September.
