Premier Division favourites and current leaders, Park Bar are presented with a glorious opportunity to open up an eight point gap on the summit this weekend.

As second placed Derry City are not in action, Park take on Abercorn knowing victory will give them a major boost in the race for the title.

Top of the Hill Celtic recorded an important win over the ‘Candy Stripes’ last Sunday to reignite their title tilt and they will be hopeful of closing the gap on second placed to a single point with a victory over Lisahally.

In the only other top eight clash this Sunday, fourth placed, Brandywell Harps and fifth placed Trojans go head-to-head at Prehen.

In the bottom seven section of the table Tristar take on Oxford Stars in the game of the day while Phoenix meet Ballymoor and bottom club, Crescent take on Culmore Colts in Culmore.

All Sunday’s fixtures will kick-off at the earlier time of 11 a.m.

Brandywell Harps v Trojans (Prehen 2); Abercorn v Park Bar (Prehen 5); Top of the Hill Celtic v Lisahally (Lisnagelvin 2); Culmore Colts v Crescent (Culmore); Phoenix v Ballymoor (Central); Tristar v Oxford United Stars (Lisnaglevin 4).
