This game forms part of a double header at Croke Park so a big crowd is likely, as Wexford take on Dublin at 5pm in the hurling league. Dessie Farrell’s side come into this game on top of the Division 1 table having recorded 1 win and 2 draws from three games. They beat Mayo 1-11 to 0-08, drew with Monaghan 1-15 each and also drew with Kerry 1-19 apiece. They are in a good position and a win here would only boost their chances of reaching a league final in late March. Players like James McCarthy, Brian Fenton and Ciaran Kilkenny will once again be key to the winning of this game.
Donegal are not far behind in the table in terms of points they are on 3 points, 1 point behind the Dubs. A win here for Declan Bonners men will put them in a good position also. The Tir Chonaill men have had a mixed bag of results thus far, winning 1, drawing one and losing one. The win came over Meath 3-08 to 0-07, the draw came against Mayo 0-19 to 2-13 and the loss came at the hands of Galway 2-8 to 2-07. Players like the dependable Michael Murphy, Ryan McHugh and Jamie Brennan will be key if Donegal are to come away from Croker with the win.
Teams are expected to be announced on Friday.
Dublin are favourites to win as they are so often these days. They are 1/3. Donegal are 3/1 outsiders to win this game. For me it’s a Dublin win by 3 or 4 points. Dublin v Donegal is live on Eir Sport at 7pm.
