Allianz National Hurling League Div 3A: Roscommon v Fingal on Sunday in Athleague at 1 pm
The Roscommon hurlers put their unbeaten run on the line when they tackle Fingal in Athleague on Sunday. Justin Campbell’s men have made a solid if unspectacular start to the league with two wins and another win here would bring promotion into focus with two games remaining after this.
A two-point win against Louth was followed by a more comprehensive win against Monaghan. Although Fingal will provide a stern test on Sunday, Roscommon have got the better of them in recent seasons and it would be a disappointment if Roscommon were not to win it.
I am expecting that the Roscommon team will be along the same lines as the one we saw against Monaghan two weeks ago.
Noel Fallon is playing well in goals while in front of him Peter Kellehan is doing really well at full-back. Micheal Kelly will, once again, provide the inspiration at centre half-back while Alan Moore, Ciaran Shaw, Shane Curley and Warren Boyle are likely starters in defence too.
Eamon Flanagan and Cathal Dolan have been doing well at midfield and they should feature on Sunday.
Up front Gerry Fallon will be on free-taking duty while Adrian Murphy, Cillian Egan, Ronan O’Meara, Jason Kilkenny, Johnny Moran and Jamie Lawlor will all be in contention for places in attack.
Fingal will provide tough opposition but I expect another Roscommon win to keep them on course for promotion and a place in the Division 3A final later in the year.
