Manulla v Straide and Foxford United

Saturday, September 12 at 6pm

Last weekend, Manulla took local bragging rights with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Ballyglass to pick up their sixth win of the season. The Carramore outfit look odds on to make it win number seven on Saturday night when host bottom of the table Straide and Foxford United. Last weekend S&F went down to their ninth loss of the season when Iorras saw them off 3-1.

Verdict: Manulla

Iorras Aontaithe v Ballina Town

Saturday, September 12 at 6pm

For the second week in a row, Ballina Town will look to pick up a victory in a north Mayo derby to keep up the pressure on Westport United at the top of the table. Brendan Lavelle's first half goal was enough to see off Conn Rangers last Sunday and six days later they'll head to Carnenash to take on an Iorras Aontaithe side who saw off S&F on a scoreline of 3-1 last weekend.

Verdict: Ballina Town

Conn Rangers v Ballyheane

Saturday, September 12 at 6pm

With five games to go in the league season, Ballyheane will be happy enough with their league position where they sit in fourth place. Tomorrow evening's game offers them a chance to push further cement their place in the top reaches of the league when they travel to Mount Falcon. Conn, who had a mid season revival and drive away from the relegation zone, will prove a tough opponent all the same.

Verdict: Ballyheane

Charlestown Athletic v Castlebar Celtic

Sunday, September 13 at 2.30pm

After taking a shellacking from Westport United by a half-a-dozen goals last weekend, Castlebar Celtic will welcome the chance to get back on winning ways on Sunday when they travel to second bottom Charlestown Athletic on Sunday lunch time. Last weekend's beating will have hurt Celtic hard and they'll be relishing getting back on the horse against a Charlestown side who went 4-0 down to Ballyheane last time out.

Verdict: Castlebar Celtic

Ballyglass v Westport United

Sunday, September 13 at 2.30pm

Things are moving along quite nicely for Westport United at the present, they put six past old rivals Castlebar Celtic last weekend, and sit four points clear of the pack at the top of the table. This Sunday's meeting with Ballyglass also offers them a chance to get revenge for the 3-1 reversal they suffered at the Candystripes hands at home back in June. With just five games left to go on in the league season a win here would be a massive step for United.

Verdict: Westport United
