Ladies Football Preview March 8

Roscommon face into a ladies football decider in the national football league while Leitrim host Limerick and Longford go to Sligo.

Lidl Ladies NFL Division 3 – Round 5

Roscommon v Kildare, Dr. Hyde Park (K Corcoran, Mayo)


This is a pivotal game in the race for a top-two finish, as third-placed Roscommon host Kildare at Dr. Hyde Park.

The home side have suffered just one defeat this season, against table-toppers Down, but they can move level with Kildare if they can claim a win here.

Kildare know that a win on their travels, however, will put them within touching distance of a Final slot, and preserve their 100 per cent record.

Sligo v Longford, Quigabar, Enniscrone (A O’Connell, Galway)

At the bottom of the table, this is a game that could have huge consequences come the end of the group stages.

Sligo, bottom and pointless, take on Longford, who have just one point from four games.

The winner here would strike a huge psychological blow to their opponents, and perhaps secure third-tier status for 2021.

Lidl Ladies NFL Division 4 – Round 5

Leitrim v Limerick, Avantcard Páirc Seán MacDiarmada, Carrick On Shannon (J Devlin, Galway)

Leitrim have two wins from three outings, and are firmly in the promotion picture, while Limerick, on four points, could yet make a push for a top-two finish.

Leitrim have a game less played than Sunday’s visitors, and a win for the hosts would leave Limerick with a mountain to climb.
