Letirim need win to move out of relegation battle

This Saturday evening will see Leitrim make the trip to Pairc Esler in Newry to face Down with the hope of moving out of the relegation zone.

Terry Hyland’s side currently sit second from bottom in the Division 3 tables with 1 win and 1 draw from 5 outings.

The victory came in their last game prior to the lockdown, when they accounted for Louth who are bottom of the table with 5 losses.

It was bright opening to the campaign back in January with a draw against Derry, however defeats to Cork, Longford and Offaly followed, to leave them in danger of a drop back to Division 4.

Down meanwhile, will look to remain on course for a swift return back to Division 2 as they are 2nd in the table behind the unbeaten Cork.

The Mourne men, drew with Tipperary on the opening day, before loosing to Cork and registering wins over Derry, Longford and Offaly.

Throw in on Saturday evening is at 4pm and we will have full live commentary with thanks to Cox’s Steakhouse, Dromod.
