Limerick football clash against Sligo a must-win for Treaty men

Limerick, having suffered a couple of losses already to Antrim and Down, realistically must win Sunday’s National Football League outing against Sligo at Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale (2pm) to avoid a serious prospect of relegation to Division Four.

The visitors arrive into the contest on the back of a fine win away to Wicklow.

Limerick manager Jimmy Lee will surely have addressed his team’s discipline since the concession of two penalties in the heavy loss against Down in Newry a fortnight ago.

James Naughton, injured in the opener, remains an injury concern.

Two teams face the dreaded drop to the bottom tier, with Limerick, Offaly and Wicklow currently all pointless.

In the Ladies National Football League, Limerick remain unbeaten following a 2-7 apiece home draw with Longford. Ballylanders pair Cath Mee and Andrea O’Sullivan  both scored a superb 1-2 apiece.

On Sunday, Limerick are away to Antrim.
