Armagh only Ulster weekend winners as other counties facing anxious last day in Allianz National Football League

Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney

ARMAGH were the only Ulster county to claim a win across the Allianz National Football League at the weekend.

Their two-point defeat of Antrim on Saturday evening, the game finishing 1-12 to 0-13, means that the Orchard County’s last game against Tipperary next Sunday is effectively a play-off for promotion.

Antrim face Longford next weekend with relegation back to Division Four a real possibility.

In Sunday’s games, Tyrone’s hopes of making the National League final were dealt a blow as they lost to Mayo in Omagh on a 0-12 to 1-10 scoreline.

Mickey Harte’s side face a daunting trip to play Kerry next Sunday, and will have to take something from the game to keep those hopes alive.

A Conor McManus penalty in the 69th minute rescued a point for Monaghan against Donegal and with the game ending 1-11 apiece, both counties have a shot at making the final.

Their last assignments are far from easy though with Monaghan taking on Dublin in Clones and Donegal travelling to Mayo.

Cavan, meanwhile took a point against Kerry, the final score 1-10 to 0-13. 

Derry are facing a real fight to stay up after their 2-10 to 0-20 loss to Cork.

The Oak Leafers meet Fermanagh, who were walloped 3-15 to 0-6, next Sunday in a vital relegation clash.

Down lost out to Galway on a 1-13 to 3-14 finishing score and face Cork away next, knowing that a win could ensure their Division Two survival.
