Lisahally sit proudly at the top of the Premier Division after a comfortable 3-0 win over Foyle Wanderers with goals from Gavin McShane with a brace and one from Darren Harkin.

Ardmore travelled to Claudy Rovers and lost 3-2 the home sides scorers were Oran Armstrong, Aaron Kerrigan and Blaine Carlin with Darren Crossan and Eddie McIntyre replying for Ardmore.

Donemana’s good form continued when they defeated Lincoln Courts 4-3 with goals from William McClintock, Ricky Lee Dougherty, Alan McFaul and an own goal.

Draperstown poured more misery on BBOB with a 5-2 home win with Dean Flanghan and Eamonn Murray among the goals.

Tullyally grabbed their second point of the season after drawing 3-3 with Drummond where Mark McClean grabbed a hat-trick.

Limavady United/Drummond v Foyle Wanderers

Both these sides have been dropping points recently and have moved down to a mid table position, the Roesiders usually reliable defence conceded three at Tullyally last week so they will be looking to rectify that.

Wanderers after a decent start have gone off the boil and they have conceded nine in their last two games a worry for manager Andy McClintock, with both defences struggling there should be goals a plenty.

Prediction: Limavady United/Drummond.

Lincoln Courts v Lisahally

The Casuals have lost their way not helped by manager Kolyn Patterson calling it a day, however they still have a strong squad and it should only a matter of time to they bounce back.

Lisahally sit proudly at the top of the table and no one can argue with that , they are playing some exciting football and more important they are playing for each other.

Prediction: Lisahally.

BBOB v Donemana

Manager Don Olphert must have wondered after the Old Boys season last time that things could only improve this time round but unfortunately for him things are even worse with just one point.

Donemana are in fine form winning their last three with some good performances, they have a number of players hitting the target always a good sign they will be favourites to win again.

Prediction: Donemana.

Ardmore v Draperstown

Damien McGee’s side lost for the second time last Saturday and now find them selves six points behind leaders Lisahally, however there is a long way to go and they will not give up their retention of the title.

The visitors had a good home win last week however they seem to be a different side at home and struggle in away games, this may prove the case again.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Claudy Rovers v Tullyally

Rovers had an excellent win last week a result that moves them up to joint second spot along with Ardmore, they were once one of the best sides in the North West and the good times may be coming back.

Tullyally got only their second point of the campaign with a hard fought draw with Limavady United Drummond, that will have given them a bit of a boost, however this will be more difficult.

Prediction: Claudy Rovers.
