Upbeat: Neamh Woods is hopeful of a Tyrone victory

Tyrone get the opportunity to build on their first win over Armagh in 24 years when they host Clare at Drumragh today (3.30pm) in Division 2 Round 3 of the Lidl Ladies National Football League.

It was at Silverbridge last weekend that the Red Hands delivered a convincing performance to account for their Orchard county counterparts and victory today would put them in the frame for promotion.

Neamh Woods is at the helm of a side that boasts a strong work ethic and subtle finishing skills with Emma Brennan, Caitlin Kelly and Niamh Hughes to the fore.

"I thought we worked really hard against Armagh with everyone putting their shoulder to the wheel and if we can repeat that we can put ourselves in a good place," says skipper Woods.

Armagh, meanwhile, face a tricky mission against Kerry in Tralee tomorrow (12.00 noon).

Kelly Mallon is certainly leading by splendid example while Aoife McCoy, Blaithin Mackin, Caoimhe Marley, Sarah Marley and Clodagh McCambridge are other key players.

Fermanagh face Roscommon tomorrow at Derrygonnelly (1.00pm) and the home side will be looking to Eimear Smyth to produce her silken skills. Down travel to Sligo.

Derry have been struggling lately and face a stern task against Offaly although the fact that they are at home might help their cause.

In the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League Division Two Group One, Derry will host Kerry at Glen, Maghera tomorrow (1.00pm) while Down must make the long haul to Enniscorthy to face Wexford (2.00pm).

Derry face a big task against the Kingdom but their more experienced players can help to set the tone for their display.

Antrim too have to take to the road and their destination will be Abbeyleix where they will face Laois (2.00pm).
