It’s back to league action this weekend with the game of the day in the Premier Division seeings title contenders Lincoln Courts hosting Waterside rivals BBOB.

Leaders Ardmore are on the road to Limavady, while champions Foyle Wanderers have home advantage over Greysteel.

Claudy Rovers v Tullyally Colts

Rovers are going for their third win in a row and after a poor start they now seem to have got their act together. that has been helped by the return of a number of players and danger man Monteith was among the goals again last week.

Tullyally played fairly well in their defeat by Ardmore last Saturday and like a number of sides who have players playing in the Saturday Morning League they can’t always get their best eleven on the pitch. This could end all square.

Prediction: Score draw.

Limavady United Drummond v Ardmore

The home side suffered a bit of a shock result last week against an understrength Greysteel. They can’t afford any more slip ups if they are going to challenge the top sides.

Ardmore, the joint leaders were made to fight all the way last week. However they still looked a very good side and with Dee McGee set to return they will be even stronger. Calvin McCallion is on fire at the moment.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Lincoln Courts v BBOB

This Waterside derby usually produces plenty of talking points. The Courts were without a game last week so they will be raring to go they also saw Ardmore join them at the top of the table.

The Old Boys are rooted to the bottom of the table and pointless after four games not a position that manager Don Olphert will put up with so he may make changes for this one.

Prediction: Lincoln Courts.

Foyle Wanderers v Greysteel

The Wanderers sit in third but if they win their two games in hand they will go three points clear. Playing with supreme confidence they have quality throughout the side and it is going to take something special to stop the.

Greysteel gave themselves a major boost with that win last week even though they were missing their gaelic players. With Faughanvale winning at the weekend they are still going to be understrength for a while yet.

Prediction: Foyle Wanderers.
