Dooner’s weekend predictions – November 17th


A gap has developed at the top of the Premier Division and Castlerea Celtic will be hoping to maintain it. The pressure is now on the likes of Boyle Celtic and St. Peter’s to respond.  

Meanwhile Moore and Ballymoe will be hoping to gain some ground on the top half. Plenty of goals last weekend and we can expect more of the same this week…

Friday, November 17th

The Herald Premier Division

Moore United v Dysart FC (8 pm)

Moore are difficult to beat at home and will be hoping to climb up the table before Christmas.

Prediction: Moore United

Killeen Sports Grounds Division Two (8 pm)

Cloonfad United B v Glen Celtic

The visitors should take maximum points.

Castlerea Celtic v Skyvalley Rovers

Celtic will be confident of maintaining their lead at the top.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

The league leaders are slight favourites for this top of the table clash.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town B

Moylough ’79 v Boyle Celtic B

The big game this weekend in Division Two. I’m leaning towards a narrow Celtic win.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic B

Roscommon United v Cam Celtic

Difficult to pick a winner here. Home advantage could prove decisive but can’t write off Cam.

Prediction: Draw

Shiven Rovers B v Castlerea Celtic B

The visitors have yet to beat a team above them in the league.

Prediction: Shiven Rovers B

Skyvalley Rovers B v Rahara Rovers

Rahara have been going well in recent weeks.
