Belfast Star coach Adrian Fulton is confident his men can ease across the line and secure their place in the top four end-of-season Champions Trophy within the next 24 hours.

Star face up to a tough All Ireland Super League double-header as tonight they travel to Dublin to face Killester and then tomorrow are at home in La Salle against Cork side Demons (2.00pm).

One victory from the two games should be enough for Star to be part of the elite event and having enjoyed a nail-biting success over Killorglin last weekend, his men are in the mood to finish the season in style.

American Mike Davis has been in fine form all season, while captain Conor Johnston, Paddy McGaharan and Conor Quinn have all stepped up a notch to the extent that the shock exit of Mark Berlic in January has largely gone unnoticed.

"I've been very pleased with how the lads have dug deep in recent games. We've been without a few players due to different reasons but those who have played have shown a great attitude. We have come a long way this season and to make sure of the top four would be great," said Fulton.

"We've got a hard double header this weekend but I believe we will rise to the challenge.

"Our American Mike Davis has been brilliant and it makes you wonder what he has to do to win a player of the month award."
