Irish Cup fever takes centre this weekend with Oxford United and Trojans both on the road.

Oxford travel to Ards Rangers (KO 1.30pm), while Trojans come up against Champoinships One side Loughgall (KO 1.30pm).

Rangers who like most clubs had the weekend off last week because of the terrible weather, but in their last outing they drew 3-3 with Drumaness Mills.

As for the Villagers, who narrowly defeated Institute 1-0 earlier in the season, they will go into Saturday’s clash with Trojans as favourites.

They secured a point at mid-table Knockbreda last weekend, while they easily seen off bottom side Donegal Celtic 3-1 only a few weeks ago.

Trojans will be hoping that ex-Stute striker Darren McFadden can get the goals and former Derry City man Darren McCready can use his experience in their attempts to cause a cup shock.
