Banbridge Rangers host Fivemiletown United this weekend hoping to protect their eight match unbeaten run.

That spell has left them fourth in the table, just eight points off the top. They’re six points ahead of Saturday’s visitors to Havelock Park, who have four games in hand. That makes this weekend’s game a real six pointer. (All kick-offs 2pm unless stated.)

Seapatrick

Seapatrick’s penultimate game of the Intermediate A season is away to St Mary’s this weekend. They could go level on points with their hosts in seventh spot with a win (kick-off 3pm).

Moneyslane

In Intermediate B, Moneyslane host Bourneview Mill knowing they should take all three points at Jubilee Park.

They bounced back to form at Laurelvale last weekend and know they can’t afford any more slip-ups to hold what have become very slim hopes of promotion.

Scarva Rangers

Scarva Rangers get a much-welcome reprieve from league action this weekend as they travel to take on Ballyoran in the Alexandra Cup. Scarva are without a league point this year. Perhaps the Cup will hold some better fortunes.

Donacloney

In Division Three, basement side Donacloney visit Armagh Blues. Their hosts are just seven points ahead of the locals and so a win would be a huge boost to the Cloney’s survival hopes with six games of the campaign left.

Amateur league

Rathfriland

In the Amateur League, Rathfriland Rangers can look to close the gap between themselves and the rest of the table with a trip to Dunmurry Rec. Rathfriland still have games in hand on the rest of the league and so have plenty of opportunities to improve their standing. That game kicks off at 3pm.

Dromara Village

Dromara Village travel to Division 1A leader Downpatrick hoping to jump up to fifth in the league table.

Dromore amateurs

In Division 1C, Dromore Amateurs host high-flying Bangor Swifts knowing a win could lift the locals as high as tenth in the league table.
