CUFL Matchday Four

03 November 2015

It's make or break time in the group stages of the CUFL as teams face tough clashes that could determine a quarter final place or an end to the league campaign.


On Tuesday, UCD will know that a win against DIT will assure them of a top three spot in the Premier North. The Grangegorman men will be wary that defeat for them could put them under serious pressure to make the quarter finals. On Wednesday, Athlone IT will be desperate for all three points as they look to get off the bottom of the table and just maybe nick a quarter final place. Trinity will be doing everything in their power to prevent this as a loss would be detrimental for their season. In the group's other clash, Maynooth can assure themselves of top spot with victory at home to DCU. The Dubliners are another in a tricky situation where a win puts them in contention for a quarter final spot but a loss leaves them fighting to avoid a relegation play off.

All three games in the Division South take place on Wednesday, wins for IT Carlow and UL will guarantee both sides a home quarter final. Both won't find it easy with Carlow travelling to a CIT side who cannot afford to lose this game and are relying on a result from the CSN and WIT contest to ensure they have another day to avoid a relegation play off. As for UL, they are hosting a UCC team that know a win will guarantee them a quarter final place.

In Division 1, the winners of DKIT and GMIT Galway will progress to the quarter final along with LYIT if they prove to be successful at home to IT Blanchardstown. In the other group, wins for IT Carlow B and Maynooth B will assure them of home quarter final ties.

In Division Two, the NCI face Bray in what is a crucial six-pointer for a quarter final spot. The Air Corps and Inchicore are also in action and will hope they can capitalise on a stalemate and keep their faint hopes of the quarter finals alive. In Group B, Trinity take on Drogheda and O'Fiaich host DCU with both clashes having an impact on either end of the group. It is a crunch game in Waterford when WIT take on Cork College. Both sides will be hoping that Cork IT B prevent IT Tralee winning to keep all three in contention.

In Division 3, DBS and DKIT B clash in another six-pointer. NUIG Galway B and GMIT Mayo face each other in a top of the table clash with Athlone IT C and GMIT Galway B hoping to pip themselves ahead of the losers of that match.

In Division 4, Blackrock take on NCI B in what is a winner take all
clash for a quarter final spot. Rathmines will look to keep their group stage record perfect as they travel to DBS B. RCSI will take on Griffith College knowing that a victory will give them the top spot in their group. DCU D will need a huge goal swing and a RCSI loss if they can sneak into the quarters. IT Tralee B will be hoping that Waterford College fail to beat CIT D or they will need a massive scoreline to knock UCC C out of the quarter finals.

It's sure to be an exciting week with many thrills and spills. Keep updated with all scores on our Twitter Page @ThirdLevelFootb and read our match reports on thirdlevelfootball.ie/cufl
