Dundela will need nerves of steel to pass police test

By Keith Bailie

Dundela will continue their defence of the Toals Bookmakers Steel & Sons Cup at Newforge tomorrow.

Mark Snodden's men will face James Kirk's PSNI in a Belfast derby.

The clash is the only all-Belfast Telegraph Championship One match-up of the round.

So far both clubs have only won one league game, while both were dumped out of the Wasp Solutions League Cup on Monday night by fellow Championship sides.

One Belfast team who aren't struggling for form is Harland & Wolff Welders.

Gary Smyth's men are unbeaten in the Championship while on Monday night they knocked Warrenpoint Town out of the League Cup. The Welders face last year's beaten finalists Immaculata.

In 2009 Kilmore Rec beat Downpatrick in a rare all-Amateur League final. Kilmore travel to Ballyskeagh to face Lisburn Distillery while Downpatrick play 2011 winners Bangor at Clandeboye Park.

Eleven-times winners Larne will be hoping to kick-start their season with an away victory over 1995 finalists Dromara Village, while 2008 winners Ards play Shorts at Aircraft Park.

Elsewhere, Orangefield host Gary Haveron's Carrick Rangers while Donegal Celtic play Amateur League side Iveagh United at Celtic Park.

Knockbreda will expect to overcome Downshire at Breda Park. Glentoran Seconds will face Ballymoney United, while Ballymena United Reserves and Cliftonville Olympic go head-to-head. Saintfield United play Ballynahinch Olympic in an intriguing County Down derby.
