FAI JUNIOR CUP Abbey United v Lisnamult Celtic This game sees Danny Doyle’s Lisnamult Celtic take on one of Sligo top league side’s Abbey United. In the last round of the cup Lisnamult had a good win over Castlebar Town; their opponents Abbey United were 4-3 winners over Roscommon league side Loughglynn United. Lisnamult Celtic go into this game on the back off two good result a draw at home to Laurencetown and a fine win over Cloonfad United away. On the other hand Abbey United continues their dominance of the Sligo Super League when they brush aside Boyle Celtic in their last game with devastating style with a five goal blitz. The player to watch in the Abbey United side is Gareth Kelly who scored a hat-trick in the game with Boyle Celtic. Prediction: This is a big step up in class for Danny Doyle’s Lisnamult team, Abbey United are one of the top sides in the Sligo league and have a good cup and league record over the passed season’s. With the way Lisnamult Celtic is playing they have a good chance in this game, I’m going for a draw, Celtic to win the replay. Ballinasloe Town v Manor Rangers Ballinasloe Town go into this as Premier Division leaders after a good win over Ballymoe FC in their last league game. Over the years Ballinasloe have been cup specialists and are the current league champions and must go into this match with a real chance to go thought to the next round. Leitrim side Manor Rangers beat Castlerea Celtic in the last round and in their last league game shared the points with City United with a late goal from Rangers’ Paul Lonegan. Prediction: Only one winner for me the Town into the next round.
