The North West Premiership title race reaches a crucial stage with midweek action starting on Tuesday night.

Strabane, the league leaders, travel to face one of their closest challengers, Bready, at Magheramason.

Brigade, who lie in second place in the table, face a tough trip to Donemana in a match they can’t afford to lose if they want to keep pace with Strabane.

The game is also crucial for Donemana, who endured such a disappointing start to the league season.

However, Richard Kee’s men are on the crest of a wave at the minute, sealing their place in the North West Senior Cup final with a thumping win over Coleraine.

If they are to have a realistic chance of contending for the title, Kee knows they can’t afford any more defeats, with three losses already on their card.

League champions Coleraine are two fixtures behind. Their home game with Bready takes place next week with a game against Eglinton still to rerrange.
