Antrim joint-manager Frankie Fitzsimmons is putting a lot of faith in his panel this season as they seek to maintain their perfect record at the top of Division Four .

Speaking about last weekend's tricky away win over London, Fitzsimmons said: "This panel has been fantastic for us, it was our panel that won that game for us, not the 15 starters. We have a very strong panel this year and have plenty of players who can come in and make a massive, massive difference."

Tomorrow, Waterford make the long journey to Corrigan Park to take on the high-flying Saffrons, with Antrim's confidence sky-high following four wins on the trot.

With Gearoid Adams alongside Fitzsimmons, and a backroom team including former players Sean McGreevey and Joe Quinn, along with Brian Magee looking after conditioning, a win would leave Antrim close to promotion.
