Our Prediction:

Rhode will win

Rhode – Ferbane Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 10:30

Offaly"s two midfielders, Ciaran McManus and Niall Smith, will do battle at midfield and both players are likely to play a big role, but Gracefield"s half-back and half-forward lines should win the battle for breaking ball and their greater scoring ability should be too much for Tubber to handle, as a club who find scoring more than twelve times extremely difficult. Gracefield should welcome back the two Fitzpatricks and that added firepower could give them the edge in what could be a very hard fought and entertaining game.

Shannonbridge will have their work cut out handling the effervescent pairing of Gearid O"Grady and Shane Dooley, but Ferbane exposed Tullamore"s mental fragility last time out and Shannonbridge could easily do the same this weekend. If he spends his time going from side to side and hitting in long-range shots over crowded defences, Shannonbridge"s scorers will be starved of possession and Tullamore will get home, possibly by the four point margin that they need. We"re going to predict Kelly will learn his lesson from the Rhode match and Tullamore to go from county champions to relegation candidates by Sunday evening. The key lies with Jason Kelly - if he moves the ball along and doesn"t overplay it some fifty metres from goals, Shannonbridge will win.

Rynagh"s could surprise a lot of people in this game, though Rovers" fighting spirit may see them sneak the draw that they need to stay in the senior ranks. Erin Rovers are competitive and committed team, but they don"t score freely, and if they can"t shake Rynagh"s loose early on, the men in hoops will grow in confidence. Players like Gary Mahon, Gary O"Connor and Stephen Wynne are well able to take a score, while if either of the Rafferty brothers can put the shackles on Alan Lynam, Rovers will find scores very hard to come by.

Doon aren"t firing on all cylinders by any means, but they scored 1-14 against Kilcormac/Killoughey last time out and Birr can only dream of scoring fifteen times in a single game. Doon to win by between two and three goals is the verdict. Birr can win this, but they"ll need to score at least two more goals than Doon do, possibly three. Doon warmed up for this match with a big league win over Daingean during which they scored four goals - scoring two or three more than that could prove difficult.

The Island have come through their two games so far with some ease and nothing that Kilclonfert have shown this season suggests that they can rock the boat. Kilclonfert"s narrow win over Ballyfore in the last round kept alive their hopes of progression to the knockout stages of the Intermediate Football Championship, but getting into the last six is one thing - getting a result over Walsh Island is quite another. Stalwarts like Fergal Beacon and Declan Kelly will do their best, but they look outgunned by a Walsh Island team who have Brian and Ross Connor dominating the middle and Alan and Willie Mulhall to convert the chances that will undoubtedly ensue.

For example, if Shamrocks beat Cappincur in the final round, they will have had an extraordinary summer, picking up three wins and six points, but Ferbane, Edenderry and Tullamore win their final round ties, Shamrocks will not only miss out on a quarter-final, but worse still, will land themselves in a relegation play-off.

Raheen have been extremely disappointing in this years IFC and appear to be regressing after several years of playing very competitively at this level. Bracknagh also had a difficult outing in round two of this years championship, shipping 3-18 to St Brigid"s, but the Croghan men are demolishing all round them this year and if Bracknagh can put that one-off result behind them, they can win this. Their loss to Clara showed quite how far the club have fallen and unless they can turn things around, they look like they"ll struggle this Sunday too.
