Pressure Builds On Offaly While Westmeath And Laois Seek To Preserve 100% Records

All three midlands counties continue their league campaigns this weekend.

Offaly resume their Allianz National Football League campaign in desperate need of a win.

Westmeath and Laois are looking to preserve perfect winning records.

Declan Kelly's reign as Offaly manager is only three games old but after his side's collapse against Clare last weekend, some are crying crisis.

The Faithful County travel north to take on a powerful Down side favoured for promotion.

A win may prove difficult but there's pressure to deliver a consistent 70 minute performance in Pairc Esler on Saturday evening.

Westmeath lead the Division Three standings with Down.

After three consecutive wins, Dessie Dolan's side welcomes a winless Limerick to TEG Cusack Park.

The Lake County will be expected to move a step closer to Division Two with another win.

And in Division Four, Laois are on the road to take on Tipperary.

Their 100 per cent record will go on the line against a Tipp side that were held to a draw against London in Ruislip last time out.

Both of those games throw in at 2pm on Sunday.
