There are just three games in the Premiership this Saturday with the Ardmore verses Donemana game brought 
forward to last Sunday.

The Bleachgreen men securing a shock win to deny the Holm’s side’s title hopes.

A super batting display by Andrew Riddles ensured Ciaran Curley’s side deservedly picked up their third league success.

Coleraine v Brigade

What a game this should be where the leaders take on the joint second side.

Coleraine know that a win here would make them strong favourites to win the title. They welcomed back Gordon Cooke last week but may still be missing Jarred Barnes.

Brigade have turned their attention to winning the league and skipper Andy Britton is leading by example. A number of their players have been among the runs in recent games. This looks to be a high scoring game not to be missed.

Prediction: Coleraine

Strabane v Bready

These two sides have struggled all season as their league position shows.

The home side were decimated with players leaving and then top players being out injured in the last couple of weeks.

Bready, like their opponents, will once again be without a couple of players notably their opening bowlers Craig Young and skipper David Scanlon. However their batting is strong and that could make the difference.

Prediction: Bready.

Eglinton v St Johnston

The home side put up a good show in last weeks cup final rehearsal at Donemana. They will go into this one as favourites and with cup final places up for grabs they will be going flat out.

St Johnston were very poor last Saturday not helped by a number of players missing. They still always give one hundred per cent but some of their players have not been performing the home side should win.

Prediction: Eglinton.
