Premier Division:

Cloughjordan Fc Vs Thurles Town
Unbeaten Thurles Town travel to Cloughjordan in great spirits following their Premier Division Shield Final win against Nenagh Celtic two weeks ago. Town have been strong since the start of the season and are undoubtedly the favourites for this seasons title. Clough are set to be missing strike duo Dean OMeara and Paul Lake for this one so the onus will be on Kevin Kennedy here. Towns Barry Ryan has been in top for since the start of the season.

Roscrea Town Vs Sallypark Odhráns Fc
Roscrea will host Sallypark this Sunday as they look to get back on winning ways after their four all draw with Borrisokane last time out. Sallypark have lost all of their games this far and this will not be any easier. Towns Shane Moloney and John Pio Fitzpatrick are players to watch for the home side whereas Sallypark will hope that Eugene Foley is on top form between the sticks.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Roscrea Town

Borrisokane Fc Vs Ballymackey Fc
This basement battle could see Borrisokane put one foot to safety even at this early stage of the season if they can win. They face a Ballymackey who have struggled since the start of the season but are capable of beating anyone on their day. Borrisokane’s Shane Stapleton has been in immense for along with Mattie Power and Ballymackey will look to the very talented Denis Haverty for the goals.

BT Harps Vs Nenagh Celtic
This game will have massive implications in the title race this season as league leaders BT Harps face league champions Nenagh Celtic. Celtic have been struggling with injuries and the likes since the start and haven’t been at their brilliant best. They face a BT side that have been in immense form and goals galore could be on offer here. Harps added 10 goal Tommy Brophy to their squad two weeks ago and his new partnership with Johnny Coleman could prove vital. Celtic will hope to have Jimmy Hynes back this weekend, a player that has been sorely missed this season.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Draw


Division 1:

Nenagh Celtic B Vs Roscrea Town B
Shield Champions Nenagh host a very inconsistent Roscrea side as they look to concentrate on their League campaign. Both sides are languishing in midtable at the minute but Celtic have three games in hand of league leaders Portumna. Mark Carey has been in good form for Celtic and Joe Callaghan has been the saving grace for Town so far.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Nenagh Celtic B

Rearcross FC Vs Holycross Fc
Third plays fourth here in this interesting tie. Rearcross have been flawless since the start of the season winning all four league games so far. Holycross have been less consistent but a huge danger regardless. Mikey O’Gorman has been in the goals for the home side whereas Calum O’Connor has been impressive for the Glenbane side.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Draw

Portumna Fc Vs Borroway Rovers
Leaders Portumna host a Borroway Rovers side that could still be reeling from their Shield Final loss to Nenagh Celtic. Keith Moore and Pa Lawler have been in great form for Rovers and Sean O’Meara and David Fogarty likewise for Town.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Portumna Fc

Ardcroney Fc Vs Moneygall Fc
This basement battle could be the closest of all as only five points separate the bottom five in this division. With only one win apiece this season both teams know how vital this is. Jamie Heffernan has been in outstanding for for Ardcroney as have Cathal Kennedy and Niall Maher for Moneygall.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Draw

Arra Rovers Vs Clodiagh Rangers
Twelve points separate these two teams before kickoff and both sides really need to win here. Clodiagh are looking to keep up the pace with Portumna whilst Arra are looking to make sure don’t lose any more ground on the rest of the division. Ailbe O’Donoghue will spearhead Rangers strike line and Shane O’Brien will be sought upon for the Rovers goals.

Ballywilliam Utd Vs Cloughjordan Fc
This bottom half of the table clash sees two teams that struggle to score collide. Hard to see how either side might kick-start their seasons here……… a very likely draw.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Draw

Clodiagh Rangers Fc B Vs BT Harps B
Bottom Vs Top here as Shield finalists Clodiagh host BT Harps. Rangers have yet to win a league game this season and come up against a very strong Templemore side.

Shane Fogarty and Luke Quinlan will be ones to watch for Harps whereas Darragh Brennan will look to add to his tally here.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: BT Harps B
