ALLIANZ FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIVISION 2: ULSTER SIDES…TOP, MIDDLE AND BOTTOM!

Saturday (7.0): Armagh v Fermanagh, Athletic Grounds;

Sunday (2.0):  Derry v Galway, Celtic Park; Meath v Cavan, Pairc Tailteann; Laois v Tyrone, O’Moore Park.

Ulster have the top two (Derry, Tyrone) and the bottom two (Cavan, Armagh), plus fifth-placed (Fermanagh). It’s a worrying situation for Armagh, who came up from Division 3 this year, and Cavan as a third defeat would leave them in serious trouble.

Armagh host Fermanagh, who also came up from Division 3 this year. The counties met twice in Division 3 last year, with the group game finishing level (1-10 each) while Armagh won the final (0-16 to 0-11). Cavan travel to Navan to take on Meath, who beat Armagh and lost to Fermanagh in the first two rounds. Meath beat Cavan by 0-14 to 0-12 in last year’s Allianz League.

Derry have made an excellent start under new manager, Damien Barton and will be hoping to continue their run with a home win over Galway, who won one and lost one so far. Galway beat Derry by six points in last year’s All-Ireland qualifiers while the last League clash  was in 2013, which Galway won by three points.

Tyrone, who beat Cavan and Galway in the first two rounds, travel to Portlaoise to take n Laois, who lost to Galway and beat Armagh. Tyrone and Laois last met in the Allianz League in 2011 (Division 1), with Mickey Harte’s men winning by 1-12 to 0-11.
