Top of table clash
IT’S A TOP of the table clash this weekend as league leaders Coalisland play host to second placed Clonoe this Saturday evening, with both sides heading into the fixture with unbeaten records on the line.
It’s a local derby, with the Rahilly’s able to walk to the Fianna pitch as part of their warm-up should they so desire.
Yet despite all that, Coalisland boss Damian O’Hagan is playing down the significance of the game.
The Fianna have so far registered 11 wins from 11 games, and the manager has seen plenty to please him along the way, but he insists that the real test comes in just over a week when his side head into championship battle.
“A lot of opposition teams have been hit hard by emigration, and you get to the stage where you don’t really know how well you’re actually going.
“The championship will tell us where we’re really at. We’ve done well so far, although we have yet to play Dromore and Clonoe who are up top as well.”
