Lovely Leitrim face tough battle across the pond


London v Leitrim, Sunday, 3pm, Ruislip

Leitrim will make journey across the water to the redeveloped grounds in Ruislip to try and book a Connacht semi-final date with Roscommon next month. Both sides have already met this year, with that meeting coming in Division 4 of the Allianz Football League at Carrick on Shannon, on that occasion Leitrim came out 2-16 to 0-15 winners in a good game of football. London will be hoping that a big crowd shows up for the unveiling of their new grounds and a win would top it all off.

London finished bottom of Division 4, while Leitrim finished in mid table. Leitrim won’t have Emlynn Mulligan so he will be a massive loss, but they will look to Brendan Gallagher, Donal Wrynn and Conor Gaffney.  London will look to players such as Mark Gottsche and Danny Ryan to provide leadership. London are 13/8 to win, with Leitrim favourites at 4/6. Expect a close game, with Leitrim to pull through by 2-3 points. Verdict: Leitrim by 3
