There’s a top of the table clash in Division 1A this weekend as Madden host Killeavy on Friday evening (7.30pm).
The two sides, along with Clann Eireann, are tied at the top of the table on 13 points, four points clear of their nearest challengers, Crossmaglen.
Killeavy won by the minimum of margins when these met earlier on in the league and also shaded last year’s championship meeting.
That defeat proved to be the only that Madden have suffered this season, while Killeavy have only lost to Cross.
Also, on Friday (7.30pm), both Armagh Harps and Mullaghbawn are hoping to bounce back after defeats last weekend.
The Harps, back playing on home soil, lost to Granemore while Clann Eireann proved too strong for Mullaghbawn.
Ryan McShane missed last week’s clash through injury and is a major miss for Pascal Canavan’s side.
On Sunday (2pm), Granemore take on Crossmaglen in a repeat of last year’s Senior Championship final.
The Rangers needed a last-minute Jamie Clarke point to draw with Madden while Louis Hughes and Karl McQuaid netted as Granemore beat the Harps.
Crossmaglen will be without Paul Hughes for the encounter, who received a straight red card last weekend.
A win for Niall McAleenan’s Granemore side, at home, would lift them out of the relegation zone.
At the top of the table in Division 1B, Silverbridge can extend their lead when they host St Peter’s on Friday (7.30pm).
Colm Nally’s side have only been beaten once in eight games this year and are the form team in the division.
St Peter’s sit in third place, just four points behind the league leaders having won their last three outings.
Tiernan Murphy bagged a hattrick for the ‘Bridge last week, but Sean Conlon will miss out through suspension.
Shane O’Neill’s and Maghery also meet on Friday evening (7.30pm) and both sides need points.
It’s fairly tight at the bottom of the table, with Grange at the bottom on two. Shane’s sit above them on six, with Clan na Gael on seven and Maghery on eight.
Maghery were 0-16 to 1-8 winners when these sides met in round three, but Shane O’Neill’s have home advantage this time around.
On Sunday (2pm), both Clan na Gael and Sarsfields will be hoping to get back to winning ways.
Clans lost to St Peter’s, 0-13 to 0-5, last weekend while Dromintee overcame Brendan Hughes’ side by eight-points.
