Keenan on guard for 'battle' with Moycullen

AFTER soaring to the top of the table with two wins last weekend, Mark Keenan's UL Eagles welcome Moycullen to Limerick tomorrow night.

The Galway side are in a rich vein of form of their own, having won three of their last four outings, and Keenan is urging his side to be wary of their "tricky" opponents.

"We can't be complacent going into this game against Moycullen," he said. "They are a tricky side that have always given us a great battle. We need to keep our momentum up if we want to continue with good results."

Second-placed UCC Demons go to Clontarf to face Killester with the Cork side still licking their wounds after seeing their winning streak ended by the Eagles last weekend.

"We are looking forward to the battle against Demons," said Killester coach Darren O'Neill. "When we played them earlier this season it was a close game so we will hope to build on that performance."

The clash between UCD Marian and Neptune is likely to be a tight affair with the teams recording a win each from their two meetings already this season.

"The last two times that we have met UCD Marian there has been nothing between the teams," said Neptune head coach Mark Scannell. "This encounter will be a tough one and we need to be prepared if we want to come away with the win."
