The Opponents

Last week, Annagh United hit three goals without reply past Dundela as second met third in the Lough 41 Championship. Stephen Murray fired Annagh in front on 18 minutes with a left footed effort after Ruairi McDonald had teed him up. Then, nine minutes into the second half, the roles were reversed when Murray found McDonald who duly lifted the ball over Macauley Cairns and into the net. Ben Eagle then completed the scoring in stoppage time after Conor Mullen had pounced on a defensive mistake to create the opening.

The Comrades

Last week, Knockbreda and Ballyclare Comrades battled to an equal share of the goals at Breda Park. Scoreless at the break, ‘Breda moved in front just three minutes into the second half with Anto Burns’ finish into the roof of the net from a Max Greer low ball across the box. But the visitors levelled just after the hour to secure a point when Darius Roohi found Calvin McCurry six yards out to beat Jonah Nicholl.

Last Time Out

The last time these two sides met in October, both sides had to settle for a point from Ballyclare Comrades’ visit to Annagh United. Paul Finnegan edged Ciaran McGurgan’s side in front on 18 minutes from Adam Glenny’s delivery. It was a lead they held until the closing moments when Darius Roohi headed home an equaliser from a Cathal Farren free-kick.
