Cork hosts League Showdown x 2!
Two massive games in terms of title bids are taking place in Cork this weekend. Turner's Cross and the affectionately named blahblah Arena play host. Longford Town take on Cork City in a battle for top spot in the LOI 1st division tonight with the away side seeking to maintain a 3 game winning streak in an effort to mount a challenge for promotion to the Premier.
On Sunday afternoon, Lions will take on blahblah in their much-anticipated clash. Both sides will be looking to avoid the defeat that would place massive doubt over their chances of promotion. They take a 4 game win streak with them.
The Lions squad and staff will be travelling down to Leeside tonight not only to get accustomed in time for Sunday but also to show support to the club with whom Lions have strong links with.
Victory for both teams could prove to be a significant step in their respective seasons, defeat would leave them with even more steps to climb.
Cork - LTFC 19.45 6/5/11
blah - Lions 15.30 8/5/11
