Wherever you turn in Dundalk tonight, there'll be a local NEFL side in action.

At Clancy Park, Quay Celtic play host to unbeaten Newfoundwell at 8pm. The hosts suffered a crushing 3-0 home defeat to league leaders Boyne Harps a week ago, a match which was all but over at half-time considering Martin Smith's side lost three goals in the first-half.

They'll be eager to get back on track tonight, however, last season's NEFL runners-up, Newfoundwell, are far from out of contention for the title despite sitting eight-points off the summit. They have five matches in hand on Boyne, while, in their last two outings, they have beaten both Muirhevna Mor and Harps.

In Division One, Rock Celtic's title charge is gathering momentum at present and another victory tonight could move them to within one-point of the top of the division. Mid-table Trim Town are the visitors to Sandy Lane and, in an incredibly tight league, three-points for them would leave them trailing Paudie Gollogley's side by the minimum.

The sides met as recently as October 30 when the Meath side condemned Rock to a only a second league reverse of the campaign, winning a thrilling contest 4-3.

Elsewhere, relegation-threatened Glenmuir FC will look to secure their first win under Wayne Conroy when hosting Ballyjamesduff Celtic at Hoey's Lane.

Having spurned a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 in last Friday night's Dundalk derby with Bay FC, the Blues will be intent on putting an end to their pointless campaign to date.

Their conquerors seven days ago, Bay FC, can go top of Division Three tonight with victory over Lourdes Celtic. Damien Bellew's side are unbeaten at home this season and they should have too much for their sixth placed opponents.

Meanwhile, in the FAI Junior Cup third round, Ardee Celtic are in Dublin to face Collinstown looking to cause another upset in their already memorable Cup campaign.
