Dooner’s weekend predictions

Much better last weekend with seven out of ten games predicted correctly. This weekend sees the Roscommon & District League looking to maintain their 100% start in the Oscar Traynor Cup when they take on the Galway League in Galway. We wish them well. Elsewhere, there’s plenty of action in Divisions 1 and 2 while Shiven travel to Brazil, sort of.

Saturday, November 26th

FAI Oscar Traynor Trophy

Galway League v Roscommon & District League. 7.30 pm: This is a serious test of this Roscommon side and Galway will be hot favourites at home. The visitors will have to be at their best if they are to get anything here. Prediction: Draw.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1

Cloonfad United v Rahara Rovers. 7.30 pm: This should be straightforward for the home side who are in great form. Prediction: Cloonfad United.

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division 2

Shiven Rovers B v Hodson Bay Athletic. 7.30 pm: The home side are probably slight favourites but I fancy Hodson Bay to get a point. Prediction: Draw.

Sunday, November 27th

The Herald Premier Division

Brazukas v Shiven Rovers. 2 pm: Extremely mixed from both teams so far and it’s hard to separate them on current form. However, Shiven are more difficult to beat according to their first six games. Prediction: Shiven Rovers.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1 (All kick-offs 2 pm)

Ballinasloe Town B v Kilkerrin United: Plucky performance from the home side last weekend but Kilkerrin are still favourites. Prediction: Kilkerrin United.

CP Ajax v Glen Celtic: Celtic were good last weekend but the home side will probably shade this. Prediction: CP Ajax.

Loughglynn United v Dunmore Town: The away side will be looking to bounce back from last weekend. Prediction: Dunmore Town.

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division 2 (All kick-offs 2 pm)

Dunmore Town B v Ballinagare FC: Home advantage could prove vital. Prediction: Dunmore Town B.

Moylough ’79 v Castlerea Celtic B: Too close to call this one. Both have endured mixed starts. Prediction: Draw.

Skyvalley Rovers B v Cloonfad United B: Skyvalley without a win so far. They may be left waiting. Prediction: Cloonfad United B.
