Ards vs Dundela.

Bluefin Sport Championship.

Bangor Fuels Arena.

Saturday September 28th at 3.00 p.m.


Another important game for Warren Feeney's side against one of the early season pace setters. Dundela have lost two of their last three games but those defeats were against Portadown and Ballinamallard and both those sides are going well so Ards can't afford to underestimate the Duns who despite those setbacks are still three points ahead of the Red and Blues in the league table.

Ards fans will be familiar with several of the Dundela squad, with two of last season's players in the shape of Michael Kerr and Gareth Tommons playing regularly for the Duns. Carl McComb, Owain Beggs and Eoghan McCawl are also likely to feature for the visitors. More senior Ards fans might remember current Dundela manager Bryan McCarroll who also represented Ards during his playing career. I'm sure I remember him scoring three against Distillery at Castlereagh Park, but no doubt someone will correct me!

The Duns haven't been prolific scorers with only 15 in their nine games so far, but they don't concede many with only 12 in the against column, what are the odds on a 4-3 win for Ards?

The Ards side will definitely be without captain Johnny Taylor who was sent off at Loughgall last week and is facing a three game ban. Also likely to be absent is August Player of the Month David McAllister. Perhaps Warren Feeney will move Kyle Calderwood to the back four and start with Eamon McAllister or T.J. Murray in midfield? Whatever his starting selection it is a game Ards need to win or risk falling further behind in the chase for promotion.
