Panthers place Olsen (foot) on injured reserve

Section A A very finely balanced division, with the top five teams all within reach of a quarter final place. Four of the counties will be knocking points off each other for the remaining three series of matches, but Galway are in poll position with three matches against the teams at the wrong end of the table   who haven't as much as a point between them. Mayo get a tentative vote to make it a western double on March 15th.

Laois v Louth, Portlaoise   The visitors are strengthened after their good O'Byrne Cup win over Dublin by the return of Stefan White and Cathal O'Hanlon to the fold, although both start on the bench. The full forward position will be filled by Paul Kelly pending a fitness test. Laois caused something of a surprise by recalling Tony Maher for his first competitive inter wholesale jerseys county outing since last June's disastrous Leinster first round against Kildare. Injuries to some of the county's highly rated under 21s have left tomorrow's team understrength. When combined with a sluggish track record before Christmas (although unbeaten), this deficiency adds to the suspicion that Louth could bring the points home.

Mayo v Leitrim, Ballina   Both counties have regrouped well after difficult summer campaigns and tomorrow re enact one of the championship's steamier episodes. Leitrim have bounced back resiliently from the need to replace a manager and the departure of Declan Darcy, the county's best player. Their sequence of fixtures perhaps exaggerates their likely impact on the section, but they represent a sturdy task for Mayo whose trawl for fresh forwards hasn't so far laid bare any radical new options. Not, however, an insurmountable task for the Connacht champions who aren't showing as many signs of post All Ireland trauma as last year.

Carlow v Kilkenny, Dr Cullen Park   One of the few fixtures that Kilkenny view with anything approaching confidence. This year, Carlow have slipped back into factionalism with a number of the previously dominant Eire Og representation having withdrawn from the county panel. All in all, a tricky job for Paddy Morrissey who could have done with more time to sort out things in Carlow. They should register first points tomorrow, though. Fermanagh v Galway, Enniskillen   The hardest of Galway's remaining cheap jerseys matches, this trip north brings the westerners into conflict with a side quite unlucky to have failed in all four matches. The final pre Christmas match against Laois was a particularly galling defeat and last season's B champions may well give Galway a tough time tomorrow. With their Sigerson contingent back in one piece (except Michael Donnellan, although he appeared for Tralee on Wednesday) and Derek Savage, particularly, in scintillating midweek form, Galway should take another step towards Division One next year.

Section BDerry's unconvincing campaign to date has made this section more clear cut. Even the pre Christmas programme conspired to keep Meath and Donegal at the top   their draw preventing the door opening a little for Armagh or Derry. On current form Donegal have a comfortable run in and are likely quarter finalists. There have been surprises so far. Cavan's disintegration which sees them almost certainly bound for Division Four next year, Sligo's feisty defiance of Dublin and Kerry and Dublin's loss of manager were Wholesale NFL Jerseys: Cheap Jerseys Black Friday Deals all unexpected. But the less than wholehearted displays by AllIreland champions and the driven performances of Offaly were less so. The Leinster champions should make the quarter finals, but who else? Dublin and Kerry have much ground to make up and both must face each other in the last match, but in Kerry's favour is tomorrow's crack at understrength Tyrone which can give them an edge in the long run. Kerry v Tyrone, Killarney   nb 1.45   Peter Canavan's (right) return is on a weakened Tyrone side but the player himself looked sharp in the Railway Cup final. The same would have to be said about the Kerry players who backboned Munster's effort in last month's semi final. Maurice Fitzgerald is still injured and should make his seasonal re appearance when spring is a little better defined. Ciaran O'Hare, in the midst of a forceful club championship with Erin's Isle, is given a chance to prove that there is a qualitative difference to his claims this time around. Division Two is the county's most reasonable ambition and even that won't be easy. Dermot McCabe is another of those players who showed excellent form nfl jerseys cheap in the Railway Cup. Questions about Offaly are restricted to their ability to compete at the very top of championship football. Cork are now in pole position with all the matches against their promotion rivals out of the way. Although it mightn't have much long term impact, as Division Three remains Wicklow's most likely destination, the defeat was a painful reminder that the team isn't beyond such embarrassments. There is a ruggedness about Clare that makes them hard going, particularly in these sort of matches, but Kildare were slightly unlucky against Cork. Cork's injury toll means a fairly understrength team for this fixture, but chances are they'll survive.
