Monaghan v Wicklow
Top plays bottom in this tie. A win for bottom side Wicklow would really tighten up the division but this would be a surprise. Monaghan should have too much for Wicklow in this one.
Antrim v Roscommon
Antrim lead Roscommon by a point in this very tight division. Roscommon have disappointed to date in the league but are missing their St Brigid’s players. Antrim earned a point last week against Fermanagh while Roscommon lost to Meath. This will be a difficult trip for the Connacht side.
Meath v Sligo
Meath got back to winning ways in beating Roscommon last time out. This is a real relegation battle with Meath just one point ahead of Sligo. Sligo have not been impressive in the league either this year but earned a credible draw against Cavan last week.
Cavan v Fermanagh
Both sides have 5 points to date and the winner of this will take a massive step in the race for promotion. This should be a tight tussle in Breffni Park.
Leitrim v Waterford
Waterford were shocked by London in their last outing, falling to the Exiles in a blow to their promotion hopes. Leitrim lost narrowly to Offaly at home last weekend. This promises to be another tight game in Carrick-on-Shannon.
Offaly v Carlow
These sides are two of five sides locked on 5 points in a tight promotion race. Both sides have been involved in a lot of 1 point games this season, Carlow with 3 and Offaly with 2. There is a lot to play for in this game and it promises to be another tight affair for both sides.
Limerick v Tipperary
This all Munster affair sees unbeaten Limerick, who are one of two sides with a 100% record with the other being Dublin, face Tipperary. Both sides had good championships last year. Limerick have continued that into this season. Much was also expected of Tipperary and after a disappointing start they are getting their campaign on track by winning their last two games. Limerick will virtually guarantee promotion with a win. Another close Division 4 encounter is expected here.
