The Ulster Senior League is headed towards an exciting conclusion with Cockhill Celtic and Drumkeen United battling it out for the title.

The two sides are currently gridlocked at the top of the standings on 30 points from 12 outings apiece.

Both sides have four games each left with the potential for a winner-takes-all final day encounter at Maginn Park still looming large.

Cockhill moved back to joint top of the table after they hammered Fanad United by five goals to nil on Sunday at Triaghalough.

Dermot O’Brien’s troops are still unbeaten in the league this term, with Drumkeen having lost twice.

Cockhill will be strong favourites this Sunday at home to bottom of the table Bonagee United.

After that, Cockhill have tricky encounters away to Letterkenny Rovers and then home to Kildrum Tigers.

However, Mickey Rodgers’ team have yet to draw a match and are still very much in the hunt for a first ever Ulster Senior League title.

Drumkeen are away to Finn Harps Reserves on Monday and then visit Swilly Rovers and welcome Kildrum before the final day of the season date in Buncrana.

Letterkenny Rovers are currently third in the table following their biggest win of the campaign last Sunday, 6-1 against Swilly Rovers.
