Bangor brewing up tilt at the title

Leinster Senior League

Bangor Celtic will be brimming with confidence for their trip to Greystones tomorrow after barging their way into the Senior Division title race during the week.

The Celts got the better of unbeaten Bluebell United in a feisty encounter at the Iveagh Grounds on Tuesday night, a win that marked John Scott's side as a potential suitor for the LSL crown.

Scott has been building for a couple of seasons now and the Bangor manager seems to have hit the perfect balance of youthful zest and the wisdom of experience.

Young players like Conor Riddick, Andy Dunne, Luke Fitzgibbon and Daniel McGuinness give Bangor a fresh menace while Lar Dunne, Barry Burke and Michael Fox lend their vital experience to the side.

The blend is working for Scott and the Bangor boys look more than capable of putting a decent title shot together.

GREYSTONES v BANGOR CELTIC

Stones have score more and leaked more than anyone else in the league as the Wicklow side continue to come to terms with their top-flight surroundings. Stones will make it difficult for any side at their Arch Field home, but Celtic are buzzing at the moment. Verdict: Away Win.

CRUMLIN UNITED v UCD

College are struggling at present with just one win in five outings. United know they need to be winning these games so expect the points to stay in Crumlin. Verdict: Home Win.

KILLESTER UNITED v ST PATS CY

United bounced back last week against Malahide to put a stop to a three-game winless streak. The Saints have slipped back after an impressive start and will look to get going again tomorrow. Both sides have plenty of fire-power up top so expect goals, although expect them to share those goals equally. Verdict: Draw.
