Roscrea Town Vs BT Harps
This has all the makings of a humdinger as Roscrea look to avenge their opening day defeat to Harps. Roscrea sit at the helm of the NT&DL Premier Division and will be full of confidence after putting seven past Borrisokane last weekend. Harps drew a dogged match against Cloughjordan last weekend but will be buoyed by their comeback  in that game. Shane Moloney should be in good spirits for the hosts after his hattrick last weekend and Tommy Brophy has been the talk of the league since last weekend after his two wonder strikes.

Cloughjordan Fc Vs Clodiagh Rangers
In what could be an interesting affair Clough host Clodiagh without in form keeper Jason Ryan and are also without striker Dean O’Meara. Clodiagh will hope to keep their good form going as Paul Ryan continues to bang in the goals.

Portumna Town Vs Holycross Fc
This will be a tight match as two of Division 1’s top teams clash. Portumna have been in tremendous form of late and beat the previously unbeaten Rearcross last weekend thanks to a Ryan Hanrahan hattrick. Holycross managed a four all draw against rivals and league leaders Borroway last weekend and are delighted to have Jojo O’Meara back scoring goals.

Thurles Town Vs Moneygall Fc
This should be a one sided affair as Moneygall travel to unbeaten Thurles Town. Town have huge ambitions of Premier league success this season while there opponents are languishing around the drop zone in Division 1. Thurles have an abundance of players that can damage any team and are delighted to have Paul Kirwan back from injury  Barry Ryan and Eoghan Vaughan are also in magnificent form while Moneygall will look to Michael Parlon to ease their worries.

Premier Division:


Ballymackey Fc Vs Borrisokane Fc
This bottom of the table clash will have a huge bearing on where they finish this term. Ballymackey have struggled all season having only one point in six outings. Borrisokane have played well this far but last weeks loss to Roscrea will not help their confidence. Shane Stapleton will hope to continue his goalscoring exploits for the away side while Ballymackey really need Denis Haverty to find his scoring touch.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Draw

Division 1:


Borroway Rovers Vs Rearcross FC
Borroway will look to maintain their position as league leaders as they face a Rearcross side that will look to get back on winning ways after last weekend. Rovers have Keith Moore and Benny Connolly on form as Rearcross look to Mikey O’Gorman and Greg Kennedy to help keep their promotion push going.

Stoppagetime.ie Prediction: Borroway Rovers


Nenagh Celtic B Vs Ardcroney Fc
Nenagh Celtic should win this comfortably as they face an Ardcroney side that can’t buy a win recently. Reeling after the 5-1 loss to Arra Rovers last weekend the away side really need Jamie Heffernan to find his early season form again. Celtic player Darren McGrath has been playing well in recent weeks.
