Oxford United’s hopes of winning the title may have faded following defeat last weekend but they can still play a major role in deciding the destination of the trophy when they take on the leaders on Sunday.

Should Top of the Hill slip up against third placed, Oxford then Park Bar will be hopeful of closing the gap with a victory against Culmore.

Elsewhere in the top flight Lisahally host Porter’s; Don Bosco’s take on Abercorn and Trojans meet Brandywell Harps.

In Division One as leaders Derry City are not in action, a win for Campbell’s over Crescent will see them go joint top. Elsewhere George’s Bar play A.O.H. Harps and Phoenix take on Killea N.C.
