Corinthians desperate to keep survival hopes alive

Corinthians host Ulster Bank League Division 2A leaders Banbridge tomorrow at Corinthian Park as they look for a vital win with just two rounds remaining.
Corinthians' late resurgence could yet save them from relegation to the fourth tier, but they need a win against the form side in the league if they want to stand any chance.
Banbridge hammered Thomond 54-0 last time out, and with 11 wins from their 16 outings this term, their season has gone in direct contrast to their Galway rivals, who have won just five games since their opening day defeat at home to Queen's.
Corinthians didn't get their first win of the campaign until Round 4, a 19-12 victory at home to lowly Thomond. And their season has never sparked, even though recently their results have picked up.
They crucially made it a double over Thomond at Liam Fitzgerald Park on February 20, where they won 12-3. Corinthians followed that up with a 15-11 success at home to Malone on March 5.
But those results will have been for nothing if they cannot upset the odds to defeat the league leaders, who have their sights set on promotion.
In Division 2C Sligo need to win their two remaining fixtures as well if they want to retain their status. They are ninth prior to their clash with Kanturk at Knocknacolan tomorrow.
