TOMORROW

ALLIANZ FOOTBALL LEAGUE (3.0)

DIVISION 1

Owenbeg: Derry v Cork, C Reilly (Meath).

NOTHING at stake, for polar opposite reasons, but maybe Derry will be more riled by all those 'Death of Football' barbs?

ODDS: Derry evens, Draw 15/2, Cork evens

VERDICT: Derry

Elverys MacHale Park: Mayo v Donegal, D Coldrick (Meath), TG4 (Deferred).

MINUS Michael Murphy, Donegal aren't the same force. Plus Mayo need to atone for their last Castlebar abomination, against the Dubs ... cue semi-final progress.

ODDS: Mayo 1/2, Draw 7/1, Donegal 2/1

VERDICT: Mayo

Clones: Monaghan v Dublin, M Deegan (Laois).

ANOTHER chance for Dublin to road-test their response to 'the Blanket'. This is balanced on a knife-edge; in-form Monaghan will fancy their ambush chances ... and yet Jim Gavin has a knack of delivering, behind enemy Ulster lines, on the last day.

ODDS: Mon 9/4, Draw 8/1, Dublin 4/9

VERDICT: Dublin

Healy Park: Tyrone v Kerry, E Kinsella (Laois), TG4 LIVE.

ANOTHER brilliantly poised clash between our two great rivals, one fallen on hard times, and yet Tyrone still have a chance to relegate the All-Ireland champions.

ODDS: Tyrone 6/4, Draw 15/2, Kerry 4/6

VERDICT: Kerry

DIVISION 2

Páirc Esler, Newry: Down v Laois, R Hickey (Clare).

DOWN faltered in sight of the line against Meath. They won't repeat that mistake.

ODDS: Down 4/9, Draw 15/2, Laois 9/4

VERDICT: Down

Tuam Stadium: Galway v Kildare, S Hurson (Tyrone).

INCREDIBLY, Kildare have given themselves a lifeline ... but Galway, at home, might cut them adrift again.

ODDS: Galway 8/11, Draw 15/2, Kildare 11/8

VERDICT: Galway

Páirc Tailteann, Navan: Meath v Cavan, B Cassidy (Derry).

THE second tier's match of the day ... the Royals to edge a fraught derby and then hope for a favour elsewhere.

ODDS: Meath 4/7, Draw 15/2, Cavan 7/4

VERDICT: Meath

Cusack Park, Mullingar: Westmeath v Roscommon, F Kelly (Longford).

AFTER a bright start, Westmeath hopes have dimmed; Ros to put out the lights.

ODDS: West 7/4, Draw 15/2, Ros 4/7

VERDICT: Roscommon

DIVISION 3

Ennis: Clare v Fermanagh, M Duffy (Sligo). Drogheda: Louth v Limerick, M McNally (Monaghan). Markievicz Park: Sligo v Armagh, D Fahy (Longford). Clonmel: Tipperary v Wexford, D Gough (Meath).

DIVISION 4

Tullamore: Offaly v Antrim, 2.0, L Devenny (Mayo). Blessington: Wicklow v London, 2.0, G McCormack (Dublin). Netwatch Cullen Park: Carlow v Longford, 2.0, J Bermingham (Cork).
