Belmont's Davy Hamilton insists his team will adopt a one game at a time policy as they inch closer to retaining the Private Greens League Division One title.

The Belfast side are on the verge of something special, with League and IBA Cup double glory on their radar.

They sent out a statement of intent by reeling in six points from their home fixture against Old Bleach in midweek, which catapulted them clear at the top of the table.

Should they secure victory at Larne tomorrow, the Belmont ribbons could well be prepared for the PGL trophy as they face Mossley (away) and Pickie (home) in their final two fixtures.

"We'll be looking no further than the match at Larne, who are a match for any side on their day," said Hamilton.

"We've got ourselves into a good position, but with three games remaining, anything can happen. We'll certainly be taking nothing for granted."

Tomorrow could also be a day of destiny for Whitehead and Bangor, who are battling it out at the top of the NIBA Division One table.

The East Antrim side hold a crucial one-and-a-half point lead as they prepare to welcome Dundonald, while Bangor face a tricky visit to Banbridge where victory is essential.

Meanwhile, Ballymoney require a mere two points from their home game against Limavady to guarantee them the Provincial Senior League title for the third year on the trot.

NIBA Division One: Balmoral v Donaghadee, Whitehead v Dundonald, Banbridge v Bangor, Portadown v Lisnagarvey, Dromore v Divis.

NIPGL Division One: Old Bleach v Pickie, Ballymena v Ewarts, Ulster Transport v NICS, Larne v Belmont, Dunbarton v Mossley.

NIBA Senior League: Portrush v Coleraine, Ballymoney v Limavady, Dunluce v Ballycastle, Letterkenny v City of Derry, Cookstown v Portglenone.
