Difficult to keep the Faith for an Offaly win

ROSCOMMON v OFFALY

(Dr Hyde Park, Tomorrow, 2.0)

ROSCOMMON are on a single-direction ticket to Division 2. Offaly, meanwhile, have no points and need at least two wins from their last three matches; firstly here, then home to Limerick and, finally, away to Fermanagh.

ODDS: Roscommon 1/12, Draw 14/1, Offaly 7/1

VERDICT: Roscommon

WEXFORD v SLIGO

(Wexford Park, Tomorrow, 12.45)

MUST-win for Wexford. They were two up in injury time in the Gaelic Grounds for what would have been a therapeutic victory last Sunday, only for Ian Ryan to stack more spring frustration with a killer goal. Another loss and relegation is probable.

ODDS: Wexford 4/6, Draw 15/2, Sligo 6/4

VERDICT: Wexford

LONGFORD v CAVAN

(Pearse Park, Tomorrow, 2.0)

A 100pc record in the League, an U21 team seemingly on course for a fourth Ulster crown on the spin – blink and you might miss Cavan football shoot upwards. Promotion beckons and the only question is whether they go up as divisional champions.

ODDS: Longford 7/4, Draw 15/2, Cavan 4/7

VERDICT: Cavan

LIMERICK v FERMANAGH

(Gaelic Grounds, Tomorrow, 2.0)

BETWEEN them, Seán and Séamus Quigley hit 3-6 for Fermanagh against Roscommon last time out. Conor Quigley, meanwhile, is vice-captain. On Wednesday, they reportedly left the panel altogether and, with them, any chance of Pete McGrath's team avoiding relegation bother.

ODDS: Limerick 8/11, Draw 15/2, Fermanagh 11/8

VERDICT: Limerick

GARDEN STROLL LOOKS UNLIKELY

CARLOW v WICKLOW

(Dr Cullen Park, Tomorrow, 1.0)

AGAINST all expectations, Carlow beat Antrim by a point in Dr Cullen Park. Emboldened, they might now give Wicklow a rattle too.

ODDS: Carlow 3/1, Draw 15/2, Wicklow 1/3

VERDICT: Wicklow

TIPPERARY v ANTRIM

(Thurles, Tomorrow, 2.0)

IT's two-from-three between Tipp, Clare and Leitrim (seven points each) for promotion and, with the Banner off this weekend and Leitrim away in Waterford, the Premier could nose ahead.

ODDS: Tipperary 2/5, Draw 15/2, Antrim 5/2

VERDICT: Tipperary

WATERFORD v LEITRIM

(Dungarvan, Today, 5.0)

ONE point from four means Waterford are peering up at Carlow from the foot of Division 4. Leitrim, meanwhile, have a fair shout of climbing on out and can't afford a mistake here.

ODDS: Waterford 11/4, Draw 15/2, Leitrim 4/11

VERDICT: Leitrim
