Still all to play for in Division 3, and as I mentioned promotion is likely to come down to two from Louth, Tipp and ourselves. We ended Louth’s 100% run yesterday with a comfortable victory in Drogheda - probably a reflection of how poor Louth are, although we are belatedly coming into a bit of form.
Tipp held on for a victory over Offaly in what appeared a tight enough game, so the top of the table now reads Louth and Tipp on eight points, ourselves on seven, with Sligo on five after defeat to Longford.
Next week we are home to Antrim while Louth and Tipp play each other. My hope would be that we can beat Antrim to move into the top two, given that points will be dropped between our promotion rivals. That will then in all likelihood leave our last match - at home to Tipp - as a must win for both sides to get promotion. Louth host Sligo on the last day.
At the other end of the table, wins yesterday for Longford and Antrim mean that things are looking ominous for both Offaly and Laois, although there is still time for them to extricate themselves. However they play each other in the last fixture, so it is almost certain that at least one of them will go down.
