Ladies ready for Lilywhite challenge

Lidl Ladies NFL Division Three Semi-Final: Roscommon v Kildare on Sunday at 1 pm at Parnell Park

Confidence is high in the Roscommon Ladies football camp as they prepare to face Kildare at Parnell Park this Sunday for a place in the Division Three final.

  Speaking to People Sport on Monday, manager Ollie Lennon said his charges are looking forward to the game. 

  “This is where we wanted to be when the season started and the players are looking forward to the challenge. The opposition will be good and it’s an excellent venue for the game but it’s a game that we are capable of winning if we play to our capability,” he said.

  “Lisa O’Rourke is away in Croatia at a boxing tournament so she will be a loss to us, but we will have a full panel apart from that and we have plenty of talented girls to come in and do a job for the team. We wish Lisa the best of luck this weekend too. It is good that we are going into the game on the back of a good display against Sligo and that should stand to us.

  “We know that Kildare will be tough. They are the only unbeaten team in the division so they will come in to the game with a bit of momentum, but we will have to deal with that on the day,” he concluded.

  Roscommon have improved with every outing in the league so far and if they can continue that trend on Sunday they should go through. 

Prediction: Roscommon.
