A win for either here would turn promotion into the category of probability rather than possibility. Both had wins against two teams who have played at least some good football in this division last weekend: Donegal and Kildare, though it is Armagh who seem to be coming strongest.
Armagh might not have Ronan Clare back, but Stephen Forker has proved himself an able deputy and linked up with Stephen McDonnell to combine for eight points against the Lillies.
No change for either team after a successful round four of the league, but Armagh to pip it for the points.
ODDS: Down EVS, Draw 15/2, Armagh EVS
