Second spot is still up for grabs in the first ever North West Women’s Super League season with Bonagee United and Lagan Harps fighting to be runners-up.
The two derby rivals meet on Thursday evening at Dry Arch Park (kick-off 7.30pm) with the game going a long way to determining their respective fates.

Bonagee know they must win and hope Lagan don’t defeat Greencastle next Tuesday night.
Both teams go into the game on the back of heavy defeats at the hands of Illies.
Last Thursday, Bonagee suffered a 6-1 loss to the champions while Illies went a goal better on Sunday evening for a 7-1 win over Lagan in the Ulster Cup final.
Louise Gordon’s Bonagee recently added ex-Lagan player Lauren Harper to their ranks from Sion Swifts.
Meetings between these teams have been tight so far this season.
After a 0-0 draw in the FAI Intermediate Cup – a game won by Lagan on penalties – they shared a 2-2 draw in their earlier League meeting.
There is also an Inishowen derby on Thursday night as Moville host Greencastle.
