Dublin & Monaghan Teams Named
- Mar 15,2019
LIDL NFL Div 1, Rd 5
Dublin v Monaghan, 5pm
DCU, St Clare’s, (S McNulty, Wicklow)
After losing out to Donegal in their first game, Dublin have bounced back to record three successive wins, and look well set for a semi-final place.
Manager Mick Bohan is nursing the Sky Blues nicely through a planned defence of the Lidl NFL Division 1 crown, as he runs the rule over squad members while also reintroducing more experienced stars as the campaign progresses.
Monaghan are in big danger of being relegated to Division 2 of the Lidl NFL – and need to collect some points from their last three group fixtures to have any hope of avoiding the drop.
Dublin, with home advantage here, will be roaring hot favourites to make it four wins in a row and it will take a stunning Monaghan performance to stop them.
Monaghan suffered a big loss to Cork last time out and Dublin will be eager to inflict more pain on the Farney girls.
