Brunell could book their place in the Women’s Premier League Final for the first time with a win over DCU Mercy on Sunday.

The Cork side came from behind to beat the Dubliners last weekend but have only a three point cushion going into the second leg of their playoff semi-final.

Brunell’s away form earned them a highest ever finish in the regular season and Captain Danielle O’Leary is hopeful of another victory at DCU: "It doesn’t faze us going to Dublin for another game. It’s a huge opportunity," she said.

Brunell can consider themselves lucky to have won the first leg 53-50, having trailed by 12 points with 10 minutes to go. "We couldn’t steady the ship and got outscored 21-6 down the stretch,” said DCU Mercy’s Sarah McGrath.

"Going into the game we’d have probably taken the three point defeat, but when you look at the manner of the game it’s actually infuriating,” she added.

Courtyard Liffey Celtics reached the playoffs for the first time this season but face a 30 point deficit in the second leg of their semi-final against Team Montenotte Hotel. “It’s important for us that we sign off with a good performance” The last four performances have been dispiriting. That’s where the confidence comes from and trying to turn that around now is a major effort.”
