Dooner’s weekend predictions – October 4th




Back to league action this week with some interesting fixtures across the three divisions. In the Premier Division, Castlerea should be tested in Lecarrow while St. Peter’s face a difficult trip to Boyle…


Friday, October 4th

RDFL Premier Division

Skyvalley Rovers v Ballinasloe Town. 8 pm

Difficult to see past the away side.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town

Moore United v Shiven Rovers. 8.15 pm

Shiven have proven stubborn so far and should notch their second win of the campaign.

Prediction: Shiven Rovers

RDFL First Division

Cloonfad United v Dunmore Town. 8 pm

Home win.

Prediction: Cloonfad United


Saturday, October 5th

RDFL Premier Division

Boyle Celtic v St. Peter’s FC. 8 pm

The champions put their 100% record on the line in Boyle this Saturday and are slight favourites for the three points.

Prediction: St. Peter’s FC

RDFL First Division

Castlerea Celtic B v CP Ajax. 8 pm

Very little between these two.

Prediction: Draw


Sunday, October 6th

New Balance FAI Junior Cup (2 pm)

Ballaghaderreen FC v Ballymoe FC

Ballaghaderreen’s superb win over Manorhamilton Rangers will give them confidence but the Premier Division side have to start as favourites.

Prediction: Ballymoe FC

RDFL Premier Division

St. John’s Athletic v Castlerea Celtic. 11 am

A difficult test for the visitors.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Moylough ’79 v Kilkerrin United. 2 pm

The visitors are a tough nut to crack and should take all three points.

Prediction: Kilkerrin United

RDFL First Division (11 am)

Ahascragh United v Rahara Rovers

Both sides have endured difficult starts but Rahara have looked slightly more resilient.

Prediction: Rahara Rovers

Dysart FC v Cam Celtic

The visitors have conceded too many goals so far and that doesn’t look like it’s going to change this Sunday.

Prediction: Dysart FC

RDFL Second Division

Ballymoe FC B v Glen Celtic. 11 am

Away win.

Prediction: Glen Celtic

Boyle Celtic B v Roscommon United B. 11 am

Home win.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic B

Ballinasloe Town B v Manor United. 2 pm

Home win.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town B

Cloonfad United B v Moore United B. 2 pm

Difficult one to call. Cloonfad are probably better than their league position suggests.

Prediction: Cloonfad United B

St. John’s Athletic B v Skyvalley Rovers B. 2 pm

The visitors will be hoping to continue their fantastic start.

Prediction: Skyvalley Rovers B
