Premier Division

Foyle Wanderers v Lisahally

Two in form sides Wanderers had a hard fought win at Donemana last week where they had a number of players returning, they have fallen down the table and they need a win here to get their title aspirations back on track.

Lisahally are having a great season much to do with having a settled side, they are playing attractive football and getting their due rewards which has taken them to the top of the table.

This could end all square.

Prediction: Score Draw.

Draperstown v Donemana

The home side are a more than a decent outfit who are very difficult to beat on their home turf.

They are sitting in mid table and are capable of a top four finish.

Donemana bowed out of the City Cup last week but before that defeat they had picked up a number of impressive results.

They might be content to come home with a point.

Prediction: Score Draw.
