Cork Con will look to move third in the Ulster Bank League Division 1A when they clash with Terenure at Temple Hill tomorrow (2.30pm).

Con are fourth in the standings, four points behind UCD, who have fallen off the pace in recent weeks. And a win would be a huge boost for Con as they look to put themselves in the best possible position for a shot at the play-offs.

Con have won just seven of their 15 games this term but if they can back up their impressive win over Garryowen, they could be set for a big improvement on last season's disappointing eighth-place finish.

In Division 2A, Nenagh Ormond and Cashel clash in the Friday Night Lights game at New Ormond Park this evening. Nenagh are fourth in the table, with Cashel only three points and one place behind after 16 games.

There are just two sets of fixtures remaining and UCC need to beat Skerries at Holmpatrick if they want to keep their promotion dream alive. Elsewhere, Thomond look doomed unless they can beat Queen's University at Liam Fitzgerald Park. In Division 2B, Sunday's Well host Highfield in the derby game tonight at Irish Independent Park.

In the bottom tier, Midleton travel to Dundalk, Kanturk host Sligo and Old Crescent go to Navan. Bruff are on the road against Tullamore.
