Galway v Wexford
Both sides are on 5 points with promotion and relegation a possibility. Both sides were disappointing last time out and will be eager to make amends in Salthill tomorrow. There is lots to play for here in a tie that the Tribesmen should just shade.
Louth v Derry
This is a promotion match up but Louth are still involved in the relegation fight too, sitting with three other sides on 5 points, one point above 7th placed Armagh. A win would have Derry with one foot in Division 1. Both sides had impressive results last time out with Louth winning in Armagh and Derry comfortably disposing of Longford. Another tough battle should be in store in Drogheda this weekend.
Westmeath v Armagh
Westmeath are the only unbeaten team in the National Football League with four wins and a draw to their name. Armagh currently lie in 7th place, a single point behind four teams. Promotion is still possible for the Ulster side if they win their remaining games and the other results go the right way for them but they would be satisfied just to stay up at this point. Westmeath would secure promotion with a draw. They have been impressive so far with good performances in all games to date. Another one in front of the home fans tomorrow should be enough to earn promotion.
Longford v Laois
Longford are the only side in the National League who are already guaranteed their fate after being relegated last weekend. They were well beaten by Derry but were competitive in the game before that. Laois were impressive in dismantling Galway and will hope that they have turned the corner in terms of their performance. A win for Laois will keep them in the promotion hunt going into the final weekend of games. Longford will still be keen to perform, especially after the manner of the defeat to Derry, and get some points in the division, despite being relegated, in front of the home fans so they will not roll over for Laois. The need of Laois is greater however and that should see them through in what will be a tight encounter in Longford.
