National League Division 3 & 4 Preview

Division 3

Fermanagh v Monaghan

Fermanagh entertain Monaghan in a top of the table clash in Enniskillen

Fermanagh v Monaghan

This top of the table clash sees to Ulster sides pit their wits against each other.  Fermanagh are the only unbeaten side in the division with 2 wins and a draw, Monaghan are a point behind with 2 wins and a loss.  Provincial match ups have an extra intensity to them in the league and this should be an interesting and tight battle in Enniskillen.  A Fermanagh win would have them within touching distance of promotion.

Verdict: Monaghan

Sligo v Cavan

Cavan convincingly beat Meath in round 3 of the league.  With recent under 21 success for the Breffni county there are plenty of reasons for optimism in Cavan.  Sligo were disappointing in their last outing in Monaghan and manager Kevin Walsh will be looking for an improvement in performance against high flying Cavan.  He might get that but it may not be enough for the win.

Verdict: Cavan

Wicklow v Antrim

Wicklow sit on the bottom of the division with a solitary point.  Antrim have a win, a draw and a loss in their opening 3 games.  Antrim have been competitive in all of their games so far.  Wicklow were poor in their first two games but picked up a point in Roscommon in their last game.  Wicklow will be hoping that they can build on that performance when they host Antrim.

Verdict: Antrim

Roscommon v Meath

Meath have been abysmal so far this season.  A loss in Hyde Park and relegation is a very real possibility.  Roscommon have a win, a draw and a loss in their first 3 games and a win would push them towards the promotion race.

Verdict: Roscommon

 

Division 4

Limerick GAA

Limerick have a 100% record after 3 games.

Clare v Tipperary

Tipperary have had a disappointing start to their league campaign and need to win this game to keep their promotion hopes alive.  Clare are on of 3 teams in on 4 points and will be hoping to win to keep their promotion push alive.  This will be an exciting encounter in this Munster derby.

Verdict: Tipperary 

London v Waterford

Waterford have 2 wins from 3 games and will expect to beat London who remain winless and maintain their promotion bid.

Verdict: Waterford

Limerick v Carlow

Limerick are one of 4 teams in the country with a 100% record after 3 games.  Carlow are one of 3 teams on 4 points and will be looking for a win to take a big scalp in the promotion race.  This will be a tight tussle in this top of the table clash.

Verdict: Limerick

Leitrim v Offaly

Leitrim and Offaly would have been hoping for more than one win each after 3 games.  The winner of this clash will put themselves in contention for promotion while the loser will be in Division 4 for another season.  As a result this should be a close encounter in Carrick on Shannon

Verdict: Draw
