Preview of the weekend’s action in the NFL Division four as Fermanagh and Limerick aim to make it three from three
A very competitive Divsion four moves into its third week and Peter Canavan’s Fermanagh said will be hoping to maintain their position at the top of the table.
Fermanagh have been impressive so far with wins over Clare and London and they should keep their 100% record against a Kilkenny side that has lost both games so far and conceded 3-46.
Limerick are also unbeaten but face a tricky tie away to neighbours Clare in Ennis, win’s over Leitrim and London have raised hopes of a promotion push this year but Clare, who opened with a good 8 point win over Waterford before narrowly losing to Fermanagh last time out will offer stern opposition.
Speaking ahead of the game Limerick boss Maurice Horan was aware of the challenge his unbeaten side faced, telling the Limerick leader “It’s a very big game for us – for both of us really, because it is such a competitive group that you can’t afford to lose games”
Clare will be looking to Dave Turbidy who impressed in the Interprovincial campaign for inspiration.
Carlow and London will be looking for their first wins when they clash at Ruislip at 1.oopm, Carlow lost to Leitrim last out while London lost by 12 points against Fermanagh.
Wicklow and Waterford who both have one win apiece clash in Aughrim, the Waterford game offers a good chance for Wicklow to gauge their progress this season with the 3-25 to 1-01 win over Kilkenny offering little to manager Harry Murphy.
Leitrim are the odd man out this weekend as they enjoy a free weekend and they have a keen eye on proceedings in Ruislip as they prepare to face London next weekend in Carrick on Shannon.
