Wexford to hold the edge over Breffni

WEXFORD v CAVAN (Wexford Park, Tomorrow, 2.30)



SEÁNIE JOHNSTON is no more for Cavan but on the basis of his performances last year, he won't be much of a loss. Wexford weren't in great form last week in losing to Laois in the O'Byrne Shield final but should have enough at home.

ODDS: Wexford 1/2, Draw 15/2, Cavan 2/1

VERDICT: Wexford

ANTRIM v SLIGO

(Casement Park, Today, 7.0)

SLIGO are the perennial 'yoyo' team, travelling from Division 4 to Division 2 in immediate succession and then back to Division 3. They should find the air easier to breath amongst similar standard teams but Casement Park is no easy opening day journey.

ODDS: Antrim EVS, Draw 13/2, Sligo 11/10

VERDICT: Antrim

LONGFORD v OFFALY

(Pearse Park, Tomorrow, 2.30)

KILMACUD CROKES man, Brian Hanamy, makes his debut for Offaly in a week when Niall McNammee confirmation he is to return to training and could be on the bench. Longford are dark horses this year, though.

ODDS: Longford 4/6, Draw 7/1, Offaly 8/5

VERDICT: Longford

ROSCOMMON v TIPPERARY

(Kiltoom, Tomorrow, 2.30)

HOW Roscommon's players react to that hiding from Tyrone last year and losing their manager will dictate whether they challenge for promotion or not.

ODDS: Roscommon 21/20, Draw 13/2, Tipperary 21/20 VERDICT: Roscommon
