Lincoln Courts big game against fellow title contenders Foyle Wanders this weekend is postponed.

The match has been called off because of bereavements in the Lincoln Courts camp.

Another top game in the Premier Division, sees Damien McGee’s Ardmore side host near neighbours Tullyally Colts.

Claudy Rovers v Lisahally

Both these sides are in mid-table. Rovers are conceding to many goals three again last week and their problems are not consigned to their defence as their forwards aren’t scoring either, a recipe for a struggling season ahead.

The visitors are like their opponents leaking goals at an alarming rate. They too are struggling to get the same side out two weeks running. With two struggling sides this could end all square.

Prediction: Score Draw.

Ardmore v Tullyally

This local derby usually has plenty of talking points, Damien McGee saw his side put up an impressive show last Saturday after a two-week break.

Calvin McCallion was on his best goal scoring form and the Colts will have to keep an eye on him, however there are other danger men in the Ardmore ranks.

The visitors have moved up to fourth in the table and they to have potential match winners in their ranks in McFaul and Cooke who are scoring on a regular basis. There should be a decent crowd at this one with the home side fancied.

Prediction: Ardmore.

Greysteel v Limavady United Drummond

The Vale centre men have struggled all season and they are at the bottom of the table. Their confidence is very low however they showed a bit of improvement in last week’s defeat at Tullyally.

If they can show a bit more then things should improve.

The Roesiders played well in their draw with the leaders last Saturday and they are going to be a danger to all as the season progresses. They have a number of promising youngsters who have been playing well, they should return with the points.

Prediction: Limavady United Drummond.
