Westmeath might have suffered seven Allianz Football League Division One losses on the spin, but manager Paul Bealin is adamant the Midlanders can make an impact in the Leinster Senior Football Championship.
Louth will visit Mullingar next month for a provincial opener and Bealin reckons there won’t be any difficulty getting morale in the camp right as a ‘fantastic opportunity’ awaits. “No I don’t think it will be hard to get the morale of the players right,” Bealin said.
Still without an SSE Airtricity League Premier Division point, Athlone Town will be intent on taking some sort of dividend from this evening’s trip to the Brandywell for a clash with Derry City.
The Candystripes, managed by former Athlone boss Roddy Collins, have won one and drawn three of their opening half-dozen fixtures. Athlone need the confidence a positive result would bring, but boss Mick Cooke is nowhere near pressing the panic button.
Buccaneers, keen to secure an Ulster Bank League Division 1B play-off berth, host UL Bohemian at Dubarry Park tomorrow afternoon at 2.30pm.
Victory is craved by both teams and Buccs know that a win may be sufficient to prolong their campaign, but the youthful Limerick outfit deserve the utmost respect as the season edges towards a lively climax.
