There are just two rounds remaining in the Ulster Bank League Division 2A as Corinthians look to complete their own great escape, and prevent their free-fall of the last few seasons.

The Tuam Road outfit were contenders in the second tier, and were on their way to promotion from Division 1B, before they lost a number of their big names.

Instead Galwegians made their way to Division 1A while their great city rivals had to suffer relegation to the third tier, with a further exodus of quality players from their ranks.

They have two games left against Banbridge and Queen's University as they look to avoid a promotion/relegation play-off, and with 11 defeats this season it would be a shock if they could avoid the drop.

Galwegians are in a similar position, but in Division 1A. And they also have two games left to prevent themselves falling back to 1B at the first time of asking.

'Wegians clash with Terenure and Cork Con and will need to win both to in an attempt to ensure they avoid having to play the side who finishes second in 1B.

Buccaneers are set to finish mid-table in that division, and in 2C Sligo are second from bottom but five points behind eighth place.

They face Kanturk and Navan in their remaining games at the end of the season.
