Dooner’s weekend predictions – January 11th



The Premier Division’s top two could not be separated in Boyle where St. Peter’s and Boyle Celtic played out a 1-1 draw. It’s hard to tell who will be the happier of the two after that encounter because as we’ve seen already this season, the top five are capable of taking points off each other home and away. A fascinating title race in prospect as just four points separates Peter’s and Boyle at the top and Ballinasloe Town who are in fifth, albeit with games in hand.
