FAI Junior Cup 2nd Round:
Rearcross FC Vs Clodiagh Rangers Fc
Rearcross host fellow Division 1 title contenders Clodiagh Rangers in what could be an interesting game. Both sides will go into this one expecting a positive result as both sides are joint top of the league with Portumna Town. Michael O’Gorman has been in terrific form for Rearcross whilst Clodiagh have depended on Paul Ryan for goals in recent weeks.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Rearcross FC
Cullen/Lattin Vs Holycross Fc
Holycross Fc travel to Cullen to face TSDL Division 2 side Cullen/Lattin. This will be a tough tie for the North Tipperary side for sure but they’ll be in good spirits following last weekends victory over Premier Division side Borrisokane Fc. Calum O’Connor and Kevin Callanan are players to watch for Holycross.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Holycross Fc
Clonmel Town Vs Portumna Town
Portumna have the the unenviable task of travelling to Clonmel to face Clonmel Town. Clonmel have a 100% league record this season and Portumna themselves are sitting pretty in Division 1. Sean O’Meara has been in fine form and was on target again last weekend against title rivals Rearcross FC.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Clonmel Town
BT Harps Vs Tipperary Town
Tipperary Town travel to Priory Place to face an in form BT Harps. Fresh off a fantastic win over Nenagh Celtic, Harps will be very confident here. Tipp Town lie 5th in the TSDL Premier and will be quietly confident here also. Johnny Coleman found his goalscoring touch last weekend with a brace and will hope to continue that form into this weekend.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: BT Harps
Moneygall Fc Vs Donohill & District
Moneygall host TSDL Division 2 side Donohill & District and will be in good spirits following their win over Ardcroney last weekend. Gearóid Larkin was the hero of that game and Moneygall will need to keep him in top form first this one.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Moneygall Fc
Cloughjordan Fc Vs Roscrea Town
These two meet for the third time this season with both teams tasting victory. Cloughjordan will hope to have a near full squad with only Dean O’Meara being an injury doubt. Roscrea aswell have been playing well of late and have depended on John Pio Fitzpatrick’s goals to keep that run going. Paul Lake will most likely lead the Clough line if O’Meara can’t make it. A very close game in store.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Cloughjordan Fc
Ballymackey Fc Vs Vee Rovers
These two sides have had unhappy league campaigns to date and will look to this game in an effort to rebuild their season. Ballymackey have had one TSDL scalp this season turning Killenaule over by 12 goals to 1 only two weeks ago but that joy didn’t last when they went down 7-0 to Thurles Town last weekend. Ballymackey will expect to win this one though and will look to Phillipe Samuels and Denis Haverty to get the job done.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Ballymackey Fc
Wilderness Rovers Vs Thurles Town
Thurles go into this one as strong favourites and are in fine form since the start of the season. Having only list one game this season (Peake Villa) Town will be too strong here, with Paul Kirwan still injured, Eoghan Vaughan will look to step up after getting off the mark with a four goal haul against Ballymackey last weekend. Rovers are in good form themselves winning two out of their first three games this season.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Thurles Town
St Michael’s Vs Borrisokane Fc
Borrisokane try their hand at this fixture against after losing 10-0 earlier in the season. Jimmy Carr of St Michael’s only recently captained the Republic of Ireland Regions Cup side and he will certainly be a player to watch. Shane Stapleton is the NT&DL Premier Division Top Scorer and will hope he can help his side to a credible result here.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: St Michael’s
Nenagh Celtic Vs Two Mile Borris
Nenagh go into this game in very inconsistent form and will not have it too easy here despite their opponents poor form. Celtic lost at home last weekend and will hope to rectify that here. Jamie Kelly has been in terrific form and is a constant threat for Celtic.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Nenagh Celtic
Borroway Rovers Vs Roscrea Town B
Borroway Rovers could go top here if they can muster a win against this very inconsistent Roscrea side. Keith Moore has been scoring all season and David McGuire has refound his goalscoring touch while Roscrea will look to top scorer Joe Callaghan to help them climb the table.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Borroway Rovers
Nenagh Celtic B Vs Arra Rovers
Nenagh Celtic host Arra Rovers In a game that has massive implications for both sides. Rovers have yet to win this season having played 9 games and losing all but one whereas Celtic know that anything but a win here will all but end their slim title chances. Darren McGrath is the main threat for Celtic and Jack Keating will hope to add to his tally for Arra! A comfortable home win is expected.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Nenagh Celtic B
Templetuohy Fc Vs Clodiagh Rangers Fc B
Templetuohy host a Clodiagh side that’s still looking for its first league win of the season. Oisin Jordan has been in magnificent for for the hosts and has scored in nearly every game this season. Paul Hanley will be looking to help his side climb the table and add to his tally for the season.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Templetuohy Fc
Gurtagarry Fc Vs Borrisokane Fc B
Gurtagarry will look to keep their unbeaten start to the season going as they face a Borrisokane side that cannot seem to stop leaking goals. Paul Ryan of Gurta has probably been the top player of the Division 2 season so far and he will look to add to his tally here. John Kenneally and John Gleeson can be a handful for any side on their day.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Gurtagarry Fc
BT Harps B Vs Ballymackey Fc B
Second plays first here as BT host the in form Ballymackey Fc. Harps have been at the top all season but know a loss here could end their title hopes. Chud Fennell and Darren Russell have been in super form for Harps whereas Timmy and Mark McCarthy have been in great goalscoring form as of late.
Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Ballymackey Fc
Rearcross FC B Vs Ballywilliam Utd
Rearcross go into this one as huge underdogs. Yet to win this season the home side have really struggled. Ballywilliam though look set for a comfortable midtable position and will hope that Declan O’Donoghue can inspire another win here. Joey Nolan is one to watch for the home side.
