They will go into the game as marginal favourites, having won the league meeting between the sides in October on a 76-68 scoreline, but head coach, Joe Shields, says there will be very little between the sides on Sunday.
“I’m expecting a very good, tight game between the two best sides in division one. There was very little between us when we met in Oranmore back in October, but I know if we play to our potential, we have every chance of winning the cup, which would be a great achievement considering this is our first season in the national league,” Shields says.
