Fermanagh will meet Roscommon on Sunday at 2pm in Brewster Park, Enniskillen. We have a preview, team news and betting ahead of the game. We will also be providing updates of the game.
Fermanagh played Kildare in their first round meeting at Newbridge. Fermanagh lost out in that game 2-12 to 0-14. They will certainly be looking for a win here or they could find themselves in trouble even at this early stage. Fermanagh will likely look to Conall Jones, Darren McGurn and Ryan Jones.
Roscommon come into the game on the back of a 2-14 to 2-14 draw against Laois. The Rossies threw the game away in truth as they were six points up going into injury time,
Laois scored two goals in the final few minutes of the game to grab a draw. Anthony Cunningham will be rather disappointed that his side didn’t win. However, Enda Smith and Donie Smith both impressed in the game.
Teams have yet to be announced but here are the sides from last weekend Allianz League games
Roscommon – C Lavin; D Murray, B Stack, G Patterson; P Scott, N Daly R Hughes; T O’Rourke, S Killoran ; N Kilroy , E Smith , F Cregg; D Smith , C McKeon , C Cregg .
Fermanagh: James McGrath; Johnny Cassidy, Che Cullen, Kevin McDonnell, Declan McCusker, Richard O’Callaghan, Shane McGullion, Eoin Donnelly, Ryan Jones , Aidan Breen, Ultan Kelm , Ciaran Corrigan, Stephen McGullion, Conall Jones , Darragh McGurn
Roscommon are 4/7 favourites to win this game. In contrast, Fermanagh managed by Ryan McMenamin are 15/8. I expect this game to go right down to the wire but Roscommon for me should win by 2 or 3 points.
