Dooner’s weekend predictions

Another 100% success rate last week! (Editor note – Please refer to last week’s results as this is probably more ‘fake news’)

Commiserations to the Roscommon & District League side who were beaten by Inishowen in the Oscar Traynor Cup Quarter-Finals last weekend, they brought a lot of pride to the league this year.


Good luck to Boyle Celtic this weekend against Carrick United in the Aviva FAI Junior Cup Quarter-Final in Tipperary.

Friday, 10th March

The Herald Premier Division: Ballymoe FC v Skyvalley Rovers. 8 pm The home side will be desperate to win this and leapfrog the top two. This is a glorious chance to reclaim top spot. Prediction: Ballymoe FC


Saturday, 11th March

Norio’s Takeaway RDFL Division OneCloonfad United v CP Ajax. 7.30 pm. This won’t be easy for Cloonfad but they should just edge it. Prediction: Cloonfad United


Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two Strokestown United v Castlerea Celtic B. 7.45 pm. The champions are looking invincible at the moment. Prediction: Strokestown United

Sunday, 12th March


The RDFL Challenge Cup Round 2 Cam Celtic v Dysart FC. 2 pm. Dysart have been terrific this season and should advance to the next round. Prediction: Dysart FC


The Herald Premier Division Brazukas v Ballaghaderreen FC. 2 pm. Brazukas put it up to Ballymoe a few weeks ago but Ballaghaderreen will be hot favourites to put even more daylight between themselves and Shiven Rovers. Prediction: Ballaghaderreen FC


Norio’s Takeaway Division One Dunmore Town v Kilkerrin United. 2 pm. There’s more than a hint of déjà vu here. I’ve predicted a win for Dunmore Town for the last two weeks but now I just want the game to go ahead. Prediction: Playable


Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two Roscommon United v Moore United B. 11 am. The visitors will fancy their chances here as they’ve been far more consistent this season. Prediction: Moore United B

Moylough ’79 v Shiven Rovers B. 2 pm. Looking at the Opta Stats, when Moylough win they usually score three, when Shiven win they usually concede two. This should have goals and the visitors should edge it, which probably means it’ll be a 0-0 draw. Prediction: Shiven Rovers B


Skyvalley Rovers B v Hodson Bay Athletic. 2 pm. Hodson Bay’s intense strength and conditioning work was all for nothing last week as the weather played havoc with fixtures. Looking ahead to this weekend, Skyvalley’s winless season looks set to continue. Prediction: Hodson Bay Athletic
