Albion go into Sundays crunch division 2 game against local rivals Ballinhassig as slight underdogs given “Hassigs” current league position and their appearance at Turners Cross in the Saxone Cup Final at the end of March. Along their route to the final they beat Albion 2-1 at Gortnaglough in November ’11 in a relatively 1 sided affair. Though after a disappointing performace by Albion on the day they are now more determened to get a result to push them further up the league. Albion still have a last 16 AOH encounter against Premier A side Springfield in the coming weeks and taking 3 points from Ballinhassig this coming sunday would go a long way to buidling their confidence as they look to build on a very decent 2011/2012 season so far. Albion will be missing Ger O’Connell & Jody MacNamara for this tie though the pairing of Duggan & Harrington is set to continue & the return of John Hipwell & Conan Dillon to midfield will boost all concerned. I will go now before i start crying.
Ballinhassig Vs Albion – Sunday morning 19th Feb 10.45am Gortnaglough.
