Castlerahan – Ramor United Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 10:45

No team works harder and what they lack in a little bit of quality in some positions, they make up for in desire and honesty, which was evident in how they ground out a win while missing a hatful of chances in a real stinker of a game against Cootehill last Saturday. Thomas Galligan and Co should have the edge at midfield - they certainly did in the league semi - and in the tight confines of Pirc Naomh Fionn, that will be a huge advantage, as will Niall McKiernan's left boot which makes him a scoring threat anywhere within 50 metres. A backlash is expected but Lacken will have a big say in that. Jason O'Reilly's men have been squndering goal chances galore (it's as if they're trying to miss them! joked one Gaels follower of long standing this week) but the positive for them is they are creating the opportunities and proven goalscorers like Dunne, Paul O'Connor et al are bound to find their groove at some stage. Lacken will feel that this column has it in for them given that we have tipped them to lose rounds 2 and 3, which they won, although they were our selection against Ramor first time out, a game which ended in a draw. This near-annual town v country clash usually follows a familiar pattern: Lacken push the Gaels all the way in an ill-tempered game but are undone by a late goal or flurry of scores, with Sean Johnston and Martin Dunne the Celtics' tormentors-in-chief. Cavan Gaels v LackenSun, 3pm, CornafeanIt's interesting that after playing the majority of their championship matches in Kingspan Breffni in recent years (last year, they had a big win over Arva in Ballinagh and beat Crosserlough by a couple of points in the quarters in Cornafean), Cavan Gaels have not yet picked up a win away from the county grounds this year. That was the way of it in the recent league semi-final, which could have gone either way, and could re-occur here. Still, though, surely the Gaels - who couldn't find a way to lose for 18 months - will find a way to win one game in the group. A team, one of whose main characteristics is work-rate, can suffer when the motivation dips so Lacken must beware.Whatever happens, the Crowe Park men are through to the knock-out stages while the Gaels must win and hope results elsewhere go their way. The Gaels' famed siege mentality - which is based in logic as success usually breeds contempt and nobody has won more this century - will be cranked up this week as the county hums with talk that the champions may crash out.

All in all I think Laragh have best team to win it out but will bluff at latter stages and the cucus will win it. Just looking at tables in Celt and I see either Killeshandra or redhills will make a quarter goes to show league form doesn't make a diff an neither team could get out of div3 . Very surprised with redhills performances so far and kileshandra with the weekend.

Seen Ballinagh game too they were very impressive, and likewise drumgoon were shocking , division 3 standards , how did they beat laragh? Butlersbridge looked a class act although killeshandra were shocking poor was very surprised with them, Shane Reilly a big miss. Also at drumlane Cornafean game then, Ryan Connolly kicked 12 out of 13 points, 10 frees both feet of the ground and long distance too was a joy to watch. Cornafean didn't look that dangerous up front , threw the game away with frees, a different ref who would have let things go a bit more and Cornafean would have won.

Shercock v LaveySun, 3pm, StradoneIf Killian Clarke is unfit to take his place in the starting line-up, it will be an incalculable loss for Shercock, who were disappointing last Friday night after earning a good point against Gowna in the previous round. Last year's intermediate winners just don't seem to be up to senior level in terms of conditioning yet and it's hard to see them pulling off an upset when they have nothing to play for against a Lavey side who played well against Killygarry without getting the win.

Kingscourt v CrosserloughSun, 3pm, BailieboroughCrosserlough have shown glimpses of form that suggest they are dark horses to make the final or even win this competition outright. As Ballinagh's Padraic O'Reilly noted at a pre-championship final chat night a couple of years back, when a team has Kingscourt beaten, they have a mighty day's work done. It's also worth noting, however, that a draw will do both sides nicely and stalemates have a way of happening in such scenarios. But yet, they have slumped alarmingly at times, too, not least against Cootehill when they lost by a point and last weekend, when they went 10 up after 24 minutes against Ballinagh and ended up fighting for their lives in the second half. They are physically strong up the centre - Joe Dillon was a revelation last Friday - and are a very difficult side to beat in championship football regardless of the form lines. For all their physical power and big game nous, they may find that Crosserlough have just too much speed about them. Not that we are suggesting any impropriety of any sort but when games are level in the dying seconds, both teams can be content with their lot and become risk-averse. This is a big test for Darragh McCarthy's young side and will tell us a lot about their title credentials but, for now, anything is possible. It's thus difficult to make a confident prediction about a side who are capable of such inconsistent levels of performance. That said, they are certainly lacking a bit of guile up front, Barry Reilly aside. Kingscourt will pose a different challenge. At their best, they are a hell of a side and word from Down is that Burren were extremely impressed by their pace and skills when they met in a recent challenge.

Imagine it as a screenplay; Killygarry's leading men are Conor Smith and Martin Reilly and one of those characters' roles in the script have just been killed off. Still, Killygarry made light of the setback the last day - if anything, they were galvanised by it and took control of the contest before securing a draw. It would take one hell of a twist in the narrative to save the production. The good news is that Darragh Gannon is a useful understudy but Smith, in irresistible form, is irreplaceable. They will be favourites here against a Cootehill side who made a mockery of this column (hands up - predictions here have been shockingly poor!) last weekend against Lacken. With Colm Smith having picked up a straight red card, he will probably miss out. We gave the Celts a tentative vote based on the fact that they had a wider range of scorers but, amazingly, they managed to score just 0-2 in each half. That's the unfortunate position the Crubany men find themselves in following the injury picked up by Smith against Lavey on Saturday last.
