Highfield welcome Cashel to Woodleigh Park tomorrow in a massive All-Ireland League Division 2A Munster derby.

The home side are ten points clear of their visitors in the standings, and with just two games remaining after this, Cashel need to win to stay in touch.

Cashel have 11 wins to their name this season but Highfield have won 13 of their 15 outings and will fancy their chances at adding another victory to their tally.

In Division 1A, Cork Con are in complete control at the summit, 12 points clear of the chasing pack, and they go to College Park when they face Dublin University tomorrow.

Garryowen can remain in contention with a win at home to Clontarf in Dooradoyle. UCC host Young Munster in the Munster derby at the Mardyke.

Elsewhere, in Division 2A Nenagh Ormond welcome UL Bohemians to New Ormond Park, while Old Crescent clash with Dolphin in Rosbrien.

In 2B, Sunday's Well have been paired against Corinthians, while the action in Division 2C sees Midleton go to Bangor, Bruff take on Tullamore, and Omagh are up against Thomond.
