BRANDYWELL Celtic have an opportunity to close the gap at the top of the table when they take on relegation threatened Du Pont at Prehen tomorrow.

Celtic have two games in hand on the leading two and while Westbank United’s current 10 point advantage may be too much to claw back, they will be hoping to secure their place in next season’s North West Champions League.

Elsewhere in the top flight, Clifton Villa return to action against Rosemount at St Columb’s Park and Creggan Swifts take on Oxford United at Lisnagelvin.

In the Championship, Drumahoe can go top if they manage to defeat basement club, Foyle Athletic at The YMCA and Newton Heath can also go top if they were to defeat Rocking Chair at Templemore Complex.

Finally, in the First Division Strabane Athletic welcome Top of the Hill Celtic Youth to Strabane; Oakleaf Celtic face Collon Celtic and Collegians take on Benbradagh Colts at Leafair.
