Cork v Westmeath — Pairc Ui Chaoimh — 2:00 pm — GAAGO
Cork will host Westmeath at Pairc Ui Chaoimh in the first relegation play-off to determine who will stay in division 2 of the Allianz football league and who will drop down to division 3.
The Munster giants have not looked as threatening as one might think this league campaign, picking up two wins from three but still find themselves in a relegation battle.
While Westmeath has lost all three of their league games, they have not looked out of place, leading Mayo for much of the game, before experience shun through. With spirited displays against Meath and Down, they could cause an upset.
Form — last three results
Cork — (Loss, Win, Win)
Westmeath — (Loss, Loss, Loss)
