Top of the table clashes on Super Sunday

Dooner’s weekend predictions

In the week that Pep Guardiola sold his soul and signed on at the Emptihad, Ballaghaderreen will go head to head with Ballinasloe in the Premier Division and Skyvalley Rovers will look to halt Lough Harps in Division 2.

  Last week’s predictions weren’t actually that bad although we would have been severely let down on an accumulator by big wins for Ballymoe and Moore United. This week’s predictions are brought to you by Met Eireann in association with Storm Imogen.

Saturday, 6th February

The Herald Premier Division (7.45 pm)

Moore United v Castlerea Celtic

Moore United defied our predictions last week and enjoyed a great win over MD Town. Castlerea didn’t play and will definitely be rusty this weekend.

Prediction: Moore United.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1 (7.45 pm)

Shiven Rovers v Rahara Rovers

Shiven Rovers have been in irresistible form this season while Rahara have struggled for any form. Shiven to win this one comfortably.

Prediction: Shiven Rovers.

Ballinasloe Town B v Brazukas

Brazukas were shot down by Shiven Rovers last weekend and will need to get back on track against a Ballinasloe side who were thumped by Glen Celtic last Sunday.

Prediction: Brazukas.

Sunday, 7th February

The Herald Premier Division (2 pm unless otherwise stated)

Cloonfad United v Ballymoe FC (11 am)

Cloonfad are in real danger in the Premier Division and face a Ballymoe side fresh off a commanding win at St. John’s last weekend.

Prediction: Ballymoe.

St. John’s Athletic v Dysart FC

St. John’s Athletic have found life in the Premier Division difficult at times this season and it’s not about to get any easier against a Dysart side who are just about still in contention for the title.

Prediction: Dysart FC.

Ballaghaderreen FC v Ballinasloe Town

This weekend on Roscommon People Super Sunday we have seismic activity in Ballaghaderreen, as Ballinasloe are the visitors. The Champions are back on top following a hard earned win over Skyvalley Rovers last weekend and will be looking to put a dent in the host’s title chances. Ballinasloe always find that extra gear but Ballaghaderreen wont go down easy. Prediction: Ballinasloe after squeaky bum time.

MD Town v Skyvalley Rovers

The home side have one win from eight games and that won’t change this weekend. Prediction: Skyvalley Rovers.

Norio’s Takeaway Division 1 (2 pm)

Loughglynn United v Kilkerrin United

The formbook goes out the window for this one, because neither side played last weekend. Between them, these two have only eleven games played this season. Prediction: Draw.

Ballaghaderreen FC B v Glen Celtic (11 am)

Glen were impressive last weekend and should see off the home side. Prediction: Glen Celtic.

Killeen Sports Ground Division 2 (2 pm)

CP Ajax v Moore United B

The home side have proven difficult to beat this season and should have enough to see off the visitors.

Prediction: CP Ajax.

KC Celtic v St. John’s Athletic

Neither side has been consistent this season, but Celtic should have enough this weekend.

Prediction: KC Celtic.

Roscommon United v Moylough 79

Really important game for both sides this weekend but home advantage could just edge it for United.

Prediction: Roscommon United.

Skyvalley Rovers B v Lough Harps

Last chance saloon for Skyvalley Rovers. If they don’t win this one then the bookies will pay out on lough Harps to clinch the title.

Prediction: Draw.
