Banbridge focused on All-Ireland League, not Malone

Banbridge will be concentrating more on their final two games in the AIL rather than this evening's Ulster Senior League game at Malone.

"Presently we are lying fourth in 2A and have to travel to Naas before facing the league winners Old Wesley at home," commented coach Daniel Soper.

"We could possibly move up to third place and, should Blackrock implode, we could finish in second and that would mean promotion."

With this in mind, Bann will be giving a number of their up and coming players the opportunity to show their skills as a number of the usual side have a few knocks and bruises and need to be fully fit for Naas on March 28.

Malone, who have lost their last four outings, will be fielding much the same team as they are free from injuries.

In this evening's other game Dungannon will be turning out for the second time in four days when they entertain Ards at Stevenson Park.

There is only the one game taking place tomorrow, between Rainey and Ballymena with an early start at Magherafelt (12.30pm).
