Derry: Burns return is an inspiration for Ballinascreen

Division 1A leaders Ballinderry look too good for a struggling Lavey when they clash this weekend while Ballinascreen have the confidence to clock up a fifth straight win at the expense of Castledawson.

Division 1A leaders Ballinderry look too good for a struggling Lavey when they clash this weekend while Ballinascreen have the confidence to clock up a fifth straight win at the expense of Castledawson.

The return of Eamon Burns after a year spent in Australia seems to have galvanised Ballinascreen after losing their opening seven games.

Old rivals Loup and Bellaghy meet but with key men Johnny McBride and McFlynn county tied alongside a bad run of illness and injury it looks set up for Bellaghy.

They have just one player in line for Croke Park action next week, Fergal Doherty.

In division 1b Claudy have been in fine form of late and they should repeat their championship win over Desertmartin.

Leaders Glen could find life difficult against Craigbane, particularly as Conleth Moran and Jonathan Bradley will be out of action.

Kilrea, with home advantage, should overcome Newbridge and Magherafelt look set for a tenth successive win at the expense of neighbours Moneymore.

Foreglen are one of the highest scoring teams in the division but the big problem is that they still let too many in at the other end. Last time out they scored 3-8 against Desertmartin but still lost by five points.

They travel to Swatragh who are 16 league points ahead of them in the league table.
