There are four games scheduled for tonight in the Long’s Supervalu Premiership as the league hopes to start clearing up the back-log of fixtures.

There are also three games in the Premiership on Saturday.

Donemana v Eglinton

Ricky Lee Dougherty’s side haven’t played for a couple of weeks but they will be buoyed in their quest for the title to see leaders Coleraine lose last Saturday and they must now take advantage.

Eglinton are on a great roll which has seen them very much in the title mix. The potential was always there but some of their players were out of form but that has all changed and with Stuart Thompson to return soon they can only improve.

Prediction: Donemana

Strabane v Coleraine

The Red Caps almost got a win at Ardmore last Saturday but a dropped catch by Aaron Gillespie allowed Decker Curry off the hook. Their South African Kevin Pretorius bowled superbly in that game.

Coleraine were shocked by Eglinton last Saturday so it will be interesting to see how they react in their game at Ardmore starting tonight. They should be to strong for Ryan Gallagher’s side.

Prediction: Coleraine

Drummond v Brigade

The Roesiders are still confident that they can remain in the top flight. They certainly have enough experience in their side but that doesn’t get you results.

Brigade still remain in joint fourth spot but skipper Andy Britton believes that his side can win the title. They will see this game as one of their easier games on paper and they should collect the points.

Prediction: Brigade
