Dooner’s weekend predictions

We are heading into squeaky bum time in the Roscommon & District Football League and there seems to be fixtures on most evenings across the Bank Holiday.

  Excuse me if I become more abrupt for the last few weeks, the pressure is getting to me so I can only imagine how Castlerea Celtic, Ballinasloe Town and Moore United feel!

Thursday, April 28th

The Herald RDFL Cup Quarter-Final (8 pm)

Ballinasloe Town v Skyvalley Rovers: The sky’s the limit for Skyvalley Rovers. Not tonight though. Prediction: Ballinasloe Town.

Friday, April 29th

The Herald RDFL Cup Quarter-Final (8.30 pm)

Moore United v Ballymoe FC: This is an interesting tie; Moore should have too much though. Prediction: Moore United.

The Herald Premier Division (7 pm)

MD Town v Ballaghaderreen FC: The visitors will win comfortably. Prediction: Ballaghaderreen FC.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1 (8 pm unless stated)

Glen Celtic v Loughglynn United: Glen were thumped last weekend at home so I fancy the visitors to claim all three points this weekend. Prediction: Loughglynn United.

Kilkerrin United v Brazukas: The Brazilians were impressive away from home last weekend and should be ok this weekend. Prediction: Brazukas.

Ballaghaderreen FC B v Rahara Rovers (7 pm): This has the feel of a wooden spoon match. Prediction: Draw.

Sunday, May 1st

Killeen Sports Ground Division 2 (2 pm)

Cloonfad United B v Roscommon United: I remember watching Roscommon United early in the season and thinking if there was a Division 3 they’d be in it in 2017. All that has changed. Prediction: Roscommon United.

Lough Harps v CP Ajax: It could have been the perfect ending, but now it’s a victory parade for the Harps. Will the visitors provide a guard of honour? Pictures to sport@roscommonpeople.ie if they do. Prediction: Who cares! (Draw)

Skyvalley Rovers B v KC Celtic: Skyvalley should win this comfortably. Prediction: Skyvalley Rovers B.

Moore United B v MD Town B: The visitors by two. Prediction: MD Town B.

Monday, May 2nd

The Herald RDFL Cup Quarter-Final (1 pm)

St. John’s Athletic v Castlerea Celtic: I like St. John’s but Castlerea Celtic have been brilliant lately. Prediction: Castlerea Celtic.

The Herald Premier Division (1 pm)

Moore United v Ballaghaderreen FC: Can the visitors wreck Moore’s title chase? Probably not. Prediction: Moore United.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1 (1 pm)

Ahascragh United v Loughglynn United: Ahascragh will enjoy this. Prediction: Ahascragh United.

Ballaghaderreen FC B v Brazukas: If it’s sunny, Brazukas will win. If it’s raining, Brazukas will also win. Prediction: Brazukas.
