Preview: Weekend’s Allianz Football League Division Four action
Saturday October 17
Wicklow v Antrim, Aughrim, 12.30pm, GAAGO
Carlow v Sligo, Netwatch Cullen Park, 5pm, GAAGO
Sunday October 18
Limerick v Wexford, Rathkeale, 3pm, GAAGO
Billy Lee has steered Limerick into a very good position in Division Four, but they will afford the Wexford challenge the utmost respect.
While Paul Galvin has departed, Shane Roche has significant knowledge with Wexford, who will feel that two wins in the remaining matches might be enough to earn promotion.
That is precisely what Limerick want to accomplish too so a lively match is anticipated.
It promises to be similarly interesting in Aughrim because Antrim and Wicklow are also very much in the hunt for a top two finish.
Lenny Harbinson and Davy Burke have both carried out diligent work with their respective panels, offering hope for the future in Antrim and Wicklow.
Niall Carew’s first game in charge of Carlow is against one of his former teams, Sligo, at Netwatch Cullen Park.
It has been a strange campaign for Carlow with the departure of the passionate Turlough O’Brien, who raised the ambition and standards within the county.
Sligo, though, are embarking on a journey of their own with Paul Taylor, who will be striving to get ready for an upcoming Connacht Championship meeting with Galway by delivering a strong League finish.
