UL EAGLES will be looking to bounce back from two straight defeats when they host Belfast Star in the Men's Premier League tomorrow.

The Eagles, who surprisingly lost to Dublin Inter in the National Cup two weeks ago and then went down to Bord Gais Neptune in the league, will face a Star side that trail them by just two points.

Eagles head coach Mark Keenan is eager for his team to get back to winning ways. "We are obviously disappointed but we need to get ourselves back on track," he said.

Keenan admitted Star's young talent Paul Dick is a major threat to his side, but believes they have an attacking threat throughout their side. "Yes, Paul has been playing very well, but, when you look at Star's stats, they have a good spread of scoring and minutes, with a number of guys popping up in games."

Scott Kinevane is again likely to miss out for the home side having only been involved in light training this week.

Aertv SportsLive will broadcast the game live on Aertv.ie from 7:30.

Meanwhile, in the Women's Premier League, WIT Wildcats will be looking to consolidate their top spot when they travel to Limerick tomorrow to take on second-placed UL Huskies.

That game can also be seen live on Aertv.ie with coverage beginning at 4.45.
