Raheny United v Peamount United - With a host of international players on display this game promises to be another top class encounter

Raheny United v Peamount United, Morton Stadium (7.30pm)

Unbeaten Raheny United and champions Peamount United square up in the latest enthralling clash between the league’s top two sides.

Raheny got the better of their Southside rivals in last month’s FAI Umbro Women’s Senior Cup final when a last-minute goal clinched the victory in a very tight clash at Dalymount Park.

Peamount top the table by a single goal advantage after both sides won their opening three league fixtures. With a host of international players on display this game promises to be another top class encounter.

Shamrock Rovers v DLR Waves, Tallaght Stadium (2.00pm)

Shamrock Rovers and DLR Waves will both look to secure their first victories of the season when they meet at Tallaght Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The Hoops drew 1-1 with Wexford Youths last time out and have only narrowly lost to Raheny United and Cork Women’s FC in their other two encounters. DLR Waves are the newest club in the league and are seeking their first point at National League level.

Wexford Youths v Castlebar Celtic, Ferrycarrig Park (7.00pm)

Wexford Youths will look to capitalise on any potential stalemate in the Raheny United-Peamount United fixture to stay in contention at the top of the table when they host Castlebar Celtic.

The Model County outfit were held to a 1-1 draw by Shamrock Rovers last time out but beat Cork Women’s FC and DLR Waves in their other two games since their opening day loss to Peamount.
