Bangor are seeking derby redemption

Some of the biggest names in the LSL have found their way into a relegation dogfight as this season's Senior Division survival fight continues to boil over.

Bangor Celtic, former Senior Division winners, are just one of a host of top flight sides glancing down at relegation's swinging trap door. Tomorrow afternoon, Celtic meet their neighbours Crumlin United, a side fresh from a famous victory over Bray Wanderers in the EA Sports Cup on Tuesday night.

United are in sublime form at the moment, advancing to two semi-finals and a quarter-final in recent weeks. The Blues still harbour hopes of retaining the title and that can only mean trouble for their local rivals.

SENIOR DIVISION

CRUMLIN UNITED v BANGOR CELTIC

The Blues have not given up on the title just yet and should add another three points to their tally tomorrow to keep up the pressure on those above.

Verdict: Home Win.

WAYSIDE CELTIC v PHOENIX

Celtic lost their last two games and those results have kept them worryingly close to the drop zone. Phoenix have won one game all season, back in November. Since then they have lost seven, scoring only once. It's hard to see beyond a Wayside win.

Verdict: Home Win.
