Dooner’s weekend predictions – February 12th


The weather once again played havoc with fixtures right across the county last weekend and there are no guarantees that this weekend will be any different as the RDFL Challenge Cup kicks off.

Friday, February 16th

The Herald Premier Division

Shiven Rovers v Cloonfad United. 8 pm

Shiven were disappointing against St. John’s and will be hoping to remain in fifth place with a win here.

The hosts will be favourites to progress.

The weather certainly did Boyle no favours with the postponement last weekend but we still back them to get the job done away from home.

The hosts to progress.

Not a lot between these two and home advantage probably just swings it.

Cam Celtic v Ballinasloe Town B

This will be close.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town B

Lough Harps v Hodson Bay Athletic

The visitors should go through. Prediction: Hodson Bay Athletic

Rahara Rovers v Cloonfad United B
