Roe Rovers came out on top against Limavady RFC on Saturday.

Draperstown Celtic maintained their challenge in the Premier Division after a 3-1 home win over Foyle Wanderers with goals from Raymond Caufield (2) and Dean Flanghan, while Ryan Curry replied for the visitors.

Claudy Rovers also kept up their title push with an impressive 5-0 away win at Drummond who were missing a few regulars.

Ardmore scored seven against Lincoln Courts with their goals coming from Dean Brown (2), Odhran Scarlett also bagged a brace, while Peter McLaughlin, Ryan Doherty and Darren Crossan all scored.

Donemana moved into fifth after a 5-2 home win over bottom club Tullyally Colts with their goals coming from Ricky Lee Dougherty (2) and one each for Grant Garden, Alan McFaul and William McClintock. Andy Cooke and Kenny Richmond replied for the Colts.

There are five games in the Premier Division this Saturday.

Donemana v Lisahally

This has the makings of being a thriller, the home side moved up a couple of places in the table after last weeks result and they will relish the challenge of taking on the league leaders. They are sure to have a big home support.

Lisahally saw their nearest challengers all record victories last week which means that they can’t ease off their management team will make sure that doesn’t happen and they might be to strong.

Prediction: Lisahally.

Draperstown v Claudy Rovers

Another thriller likely here the home side have moved into second spot with some impressive displays, they have a number of quality players no more so than the dangerous Dean Flanghan.

Rovers are still confident that they can catch the leaders, they are a side playing with a lot of confidence with no fewer than five different goal scorers last week, this could end all square.

Prediction: Score Draw.

BBOB v Ardmore

The Old Boys are not out of the woods yet as they fight for their Premier Division survival, they have brought a couple of new players in recent games and they have shown a bit of improvement.

Ardmore have certainly not given up their title aspirations and they have three games in hand over Lisahally, they have also strengthened with new signings Ryan Doherty and Gareth McFadden, they should win this comfortably.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Foyle Wanderers v Tullyally

Wanderers are now playing for a top four finish, their outside hope of a title challenge was extinguished with their defeat at Draperstown last Saturday, however they will be firm favourites to win this one.

Tullyally have almost given up the ghost another defeat last week things are in dire straits and it probably wont improve here.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers.

Lincoln Courts v Drummond

The Courts will be looking for a big improvement after last weeks hammering at Ardmore, they still need a couple of victories to ensure their premiership survival.

Drummond were missing a number of players last week and it certainly showed with one of their biggest defeats of the season if back to full strength they may pick up a point.

Prediction: Score Draw.
