The Lake County welcome Antrim to TEG Cusack Park this weekend, following a loss to Down.
Westmeath will have to find a way to bounce back from the "bitter disappointment" of losing to Down last time out, to claim a crucial brace of points this weekend.
The Lake County were ahead by 7 points at one stage in Newry but found themselves pegged back to lose on a final scoreline of 1-10 to 11 points.
This weekend they welcome Antrim to TEG Cusack Park knowing a win might not be enough to put them back in the running for promotion.
Gerry Buckley of the Westmeath Examiner says the manner of their loss last time out would have been hard to take:
