City Cup

Lincoln Courts v Ardmore

The tie of the round between two sides who have started the season well, they met a couple of weeks ago in the league where the Courts won 6-4 in a thriller, with both sides having top marksmen then another high scoring game is likely, with extra time a strong possibility.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Irish Street v Donemana

First Division Irish Street take on a premiership side, however they always give one hundred per cent and they will be relishing the chance to cause an upset.

Donemana have yet to field a full strength side due to other commitments but they should have most of their regulars available now, their main problem is that they are conceding to many goals fourteen in their last three games, they still should be to strong and get their first win of the season.

Prediction: Donemana.

Foyle Wanderers v Roe Rovers

The men from Magheramason will be red hot favourites to progress, they had an excellent away win at Lincoln Courts last Saturday, they are now like a lot of clubs getting their first eleven out regularly.

Roe Rovers are one of the best organised side in the North West and they can also play a bit a ggod mixture of experience and youth their main aim is to get promoted.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers.
