The last two local sides bowed out of the Irish Junior Cup last Saturday.

BBOB entertained Ballyvea and lost 3-2, while Limavady United Drummond travelled to Lisnakea and went down 2-0.

In the Premier Division, Ardmore hammered neighbours 6-0 while Lisahally maintained their winning run with a 4-1 over Greysteel, league leaders Foyle Wanderers game was postponed at Tullyally.

There is one City Cup game this Saturday and three games in the Premier Division.

City Cup

Limavady/Drummond United v Draperstown

The Roesiders after their exit from the Irish Junior Cup will be going all out to win this cup, although they lost last week they still played reasonably well against one of the favourites to go all the way.

Draperstown will relish this challenge they are already assured of the First Division title and this will give them an idea what things will be like in the Premiership next season.

Prediction: Limavady United Drummond.

Premier Division

BBOB v Claudy Rovers

After their third exit from the cups the Old Boys must now concentrate in their battle to avoid the drop.

They have yet to win a league game and they know that if they can get that elusive first win then they can build on it.

Claudy are going through a bad patch conceding to many goals and their forwards aren’t hitting the target the Old Boys might just break their duck.

Prediction: BBOB.

Lisahally v Tullyally

The home side are on a roll playing with great confidence they are determined to get at least a top three finish, they have a couple of in form goal scorers and that has been a big plus.

Tullyally were without a game last week but their form has been poor and the home side look a banker with goals to spare.

Prediction: Lisahally.

Lincoln Courts v Foyle Wanderers

This is undoubtedly the match of the day, the Courts know that anything other than a victory would be a big blow in their quest for the title and manager Kolyn Patterson will be drumming that into them.

Wanderers remain unbeaten with every player doing his bit, manager Andy McClintock doesn’t need to worry about motivating his players, two attacking sides which should spell goals.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers.
