Premier Division

Ardmore v Claudy Rovers

Dee McGee’s side haven’t played for a couple of weeks and may be lacking match fitness, they are one of the favourites for the title. However they must keep an eye on leaders Lincoln Courts who have opened up a gap at the top.

Rovers got their first win last week when they had a number of players returning, they are a decent side when at full strength, these games are usually close.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Lisahally v Foyle Wanderers

The home side had a bit of a set back last week at Claudy Rovers, up until that they had been turning in some very good performances and at home they are a difficult side to beat.

Wanderers remain unbeaten and are scoring lots of goals, who can stop that goal machine Robbie Godfrey, however they are all playing well and this will be another good test for them.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers.

Tullyally v Greysteel

The visitors are finding things tough in the Premier league, their main aim has to be remaining in the top flight, however they must tighten things up at the back if they are going to survive.

The Colts put up a good enough performance at leaders Lincoln Courts last week maybe feeling they deserved something from the game; they should get back to winning ways here.

Prediction: Tullyally Colts.

Limavady United Drummond v Lincoln Courts

This looks like being the match of the day between two sides who have top class front men, the Roesiders having had one or two slip ups are determined to get back into the title race they know they must take something from this game.

Kolyn Patterson has his side playing some excellent football; this is probably the best side he has assembled over the last few seasons - sure to be goals, it could end all square.

Prediction: Score Draw.
