Leitrim, Limerick and Offaly will be looking to build on victories last weekend, while Carlow and London are in a battle to pick up their first league points in Division 4 of the Lidl Ladies NFL on Sunday.
Sunday February 20:
Lidl NFL Division 4A:
Derry v Leitrim; Celtic Park
Leitrim were beaten Division 4 Finalists in 2021 and are anxious to get back to another Final – and get the job done this time.
Their big win over Fermanagh in Round 1 was a real statement of intent and now they face off against Derry, who lost their opening game to Antrim.
The signs point to a Leitrim win but Derry won’t be easily turned over on home soil.
Fermanagh v Antrim; Donagh
Fermanagh will hope to bounce back from quickly from a heavy loss to Leitrim last weekend – as Antrim aim to build on their win against Derry.
An Ulster derby will bring added spice to proceedings but on early season form, Antrim will be fancied to get the job done.
Whatever the result, however, there won’t be much between the sides at the final whistle, with Antrim targeting a second win on the bounce.
Lidl NFL Division 4B:
Limerick v Offaly; Staker Wallace, Martinstown
Limerick began their campaign with a six-point win against London, as Offaly enjoyed a handsome victory in their clash with Carlow.
These two sides are promotion hopefuls and, irrespective of the result of this one, they could still end up occupying the top two positions at the end of the group phase.
For now, Limerick and Offaly will look to strike an early-season psychological blow, and this could be one of the games of the weekend.
Carlow v London; Netwatch Cullen Park
After losing their first round games, Carlow and London both need the points to revive hopes of a promotion push.
London make another trip across the water to take on a Carlow side smarting from a 17-point reverse against Offaly.
The Barrowsiders will aim to show they’re better than that but London will provide a stiff test.
