The pick of this weekend’s action is at Ballymoe, where Moore United are the visitors in the cup and will be hoping to draw first blood ahead of the vital league game, which will take place in the next two weeks.
Last weekend, my pick for the title, Castlerea Celtic went top with a convincing 4-0 win over Brazukas.
