Orchard ladies keen to make a big point at Kingdom's expense

Armagh get the chance to improve their position in Division One of the Lidl Ladies Football National League when they travel to face Kerry at Duagh tomorrow (12.00 noon).

The Orchard county enjoyed a timely boost when they beat Dublin 3-12 to 3-5 last weekend but to date in the League they have been inconsistent.

Victory over a Kingdom side that has also struggled to some extent to date would bolster Armagh's hopes of making an impact in the competition and they will look to Aimee Mackin, Lauren McConville, Fionnuala McKenna and Sinead Finnegan to get among the scores.

Tyrone, meanwhile, face a stiff test at Galbally (2.00pm) against a Laois side with which they share nine points in the Division Two table. In fact, no fewer than five teams are bracketed on nine points which lends added significance to tomorrow's contest.

Tyrone made the long journey to Clare last weekend but lost by 3-17 to 2-10 and their priority against Laois will be to plug the defensive gaps that were exploited by the Banner county.

Kyla Trainor is likely to have a key role in the Down side that will face Wexford in Enniscorthy (2.00pm). Trainor was outstanding in the 2-9 to 2-6 win over Limerick last Saturday in Newry.
