There are two major fixtures scheduled for this Sunday which could have a major bearing on the destination of the league title this year.

League leaders and title favourites, Park Bar take on an in-form Brandywell Harps side who will still believe they can feature in the race for honours this season.

Following two straight defeats, Park got back on track last weekend with an emphatic win over Campbell’s while Harps netted five in an impressive victory over Abercorn.

Also at the business end of the table, Top of the Hill Celtic take on second placed Derry City. Both sides will be anxious not to lose this game and risk losing sight of the leaders.

Top of the Hill come into this game on the back of victory over Trojans while Derry City will be well rested after enjoying a day off last Sunday.

Also in the top eight section of the league, Abercorn and Trojans meet at Prehen with both teams seeking to get back on the winning trail after defeats last weekend.

Fixtures - Park Bar v Brandywell Harps (Brandywell Showgrounds); Top of the Hill Celtic v Derry City (Lisnagelvin 2); Trojans v Abercorn (Prehen 3); Crescent v Tristar (Prehen 1); Phoenix v Ballymoor (Brandywell Stadium); Culmore Colts v Culmore (Culmore); Terry Kelly Memorial Cup 1st round - Oxford United Stars v Lisahally (Swilly Stadium).
