Owenbeg is a nice pitch. Good quality surface. Stadium itself is something along the likes of Aughrim in terms of capacity and atmosphere. I don't really understand how the qualifiers aren't in a neutral pitch as it's a huge advantage for them. But we have to go with it. May the best team win. I personally see us winning this one - I can see the lads not being happy with Sunday and I can see us improving on a lot of things that went wrong in Croke Park. Laois by 4, especially if we see Begley return.

Meath were always going to  win on Sunday. Laois just need to pick themselves up and prepare for a tough battle!!!

Any news about Begley been fit for Saturday ? With Timmons not available Begleys presence in the backs is  crucial.

I see that Derry are favorites to win. I donít get this at all.... I think that laois are for more organized and have stronger players than Derry. Long trip for players but I think laois will win this match.

Stronger players than Derry ?? Are you serious ? Derry are physically a very big team . A spine of Rogers , McKaigue , McAtamney , Bell,  McGuigan , McFaul, Cassidy , Heron , Lynn and E Bradley is fairly strong in my opinion . Derry only lost to Tyrone by a few points and absolutely smashed Wexford the last day out so we canít afford to be going up North with this arrogance on Saturday . Derry might be about the same level as ourselves .If we play to our full potential and with Donie and Evan BOTH starting we can sneak it . Anything below par could equal a tough day out .

Whatever happens Laois will have to up the scoring to win 12 points wonít do here , 2 evenly enough matched teams home advantage might swing it for Derry

Not looking good for either of them...

I'm not too sure how accurate that is. I hear Begley will start.
