Greysteel’s poor form continued with a 5-1 home defeat by Claudy Rovers. Draperstown claimed their second Premier Division scalp in the City cup with a 3-2 win at Lincoln Courts.

There are four important Premier Division games this Saturday.

Greysteel v Ardmore

Yet another defeat for the home side last week, where once again they conceded five goals. If they are to stay in the Premier Division they must show a massive improvement and quickly.

Ardmore are looking unbeatable.

They now are on an unbeaten run stretching back a number of months, they are in the running for all three trophies and it would be a foolish man who would back against them.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Foyle Wanderers v Lisahally

How will Wanderers react to losing their unbeaten record? They will be determined to bounce straight back.

They struggled a bit up front in last Saturday’s game which is a rarity for them.

Lisahally are one of the form teams in the division. They were without a game last week so they will be raring to go and they are going to have a big say in where the title is going this season, they may get a point from this one.

Prediction: Score draw.

Claudy Rovers v Lincoln Courts

Rovers got a welcome win last week where their forwards got their act together and for once and they tightened things up at the back, which has been their big problem.

The Courts were disappointed to exit the City Cup last Saturday and manager Kolyn Patterson will have to rally his troops to push for the league title. They may have to settle for a point.

Prediction: Score Draw.


Drummond v BBOB

The Limavady men have has an ordinary season so far and a mid-table finish looks the best they can achieve, which will be a disappointment to them. They probably are missing one or two players.

The Old Boys, after their first win a week ago, didn’t take long to get back to their bad old ways with a defeat at Tullyally. These are worrying times for all concerned and they may not get anything from this one.

Prediction: Drummond.
