Dolan's Caolan McCusker has been in excellent form this season and the Creggan men will be hoping they can grab the points in Brolly Park.

Glack v Seán Dolan’s (Friday, 8.00pm)

Glack’s form has dipped considerably this year, particularly at home where they are usually hard to overcome.

They have been seriously hit by injuries and it could be another month before they are anywhere near full strength. They entertain Dolan’s whose away record is not good. The Creggan men have picked up after a poor start and may take advantage of Glack’s injury problems which will see over half their regulars out of action.

Verdict: Rare away win for Dolan’s

Ardmore v Magherafelt Thirds (Sunday, 3.00pm)

You never know what to expect of Ardmore as Glack found out to their dismay at Brolly Park. This time the St. Mary’s are at home to Magherafelt Thirds and look to have every chance of adding to their points tally. Rossas have a lot of experience but it may not be enough. The biggest shock to date this year was Magherafelt’s nine point win over a decimated Glack but this looks tough.

Verdict: Ardmore add to points tally.

Limavady v Ogra Colmcille (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Ogra look to have a stiff task on their hands when they travel to play Limavady, a team with ambitions to get back to Division Two.

Ogra are not out of the running for promotion but that surprise defeat by Dolan’s was a setback. They did push Drum all the way last week so the Wolfhounds will be well warned. Limavady seem to have their best players back in the fold again and will be favourites to win but Ogra Colmcille are a resilient side.

Verdict: Limavady to maintain push at top.

Doire Colmcille v Drum (Friday, 8.00pm)

Leaders Drum should collect the points against Colmcille who have found victories hard to come by. Drum are a well organised team while the Colmcille’s area bit loose in defence and may have trouble holding the Drum front six. The city side are making progress but not enough to stop Drum. They defeated Slaughtneil Thirds last Sunday but Drum are at a different level.

Verdict: Comfortable for Drum

Magilligan v Slaughtneil IIIs (Sunday, 3.00pm)

Magilligan have had a good season so far and look to be in a good position to take the points from the Slaughtneil third string who are by no means a bad team.

They have been managing to get quite a few goals and their introduction to this league gives the junior teams a healthy 18 games. Magilligan have been scoring well and look set for another brace of points.

Verdict: Home win for St. Aidan’s
