Westmeath Footballers Look To Maintain Their Promotion Seeking Momentum

By Gerry Buckley

 

Colin Kelly’s troops will be very keen to add to their two wins out of three so far in Division 3 when Sligo come to Mullingar. The Yeats County has consistently produced hard-to-beat teams and the black and white-clad outfit’s one-point win in Markievicz Park a little over two years ago proved crucial in the same division as Tom Cribbin’s Westmeath continued what was a truly awful slide down the divisions. Accordingly, John Heslin and co will need to be at their very best to maintain their promotion-seeking momentum.
