Road to Celtic Park

It's now the business end of the championship.  No more second chances.  The shadow boxing is over, it is time foe team managers to start and put together a plan to get them to final day at Celtic Park in October.
At this stage, championship is all on the day.  The team who can do this on three consecutive occasions will ‘bring home the bacon.’
Will Coleraine be like Kerry, after a five week lay-off, just peaking at the right time? Or, will it be battle hardened Kilrea who have dug deep to get to this stage and know more bout themselves? 
In intermediate Slaughtmanus were highly fancied due their recent experience in the senior ranks.  Will the defeat by Ballymaguigan be the turning of their season?
A lot of questions.  It’s time for some answers.  Here are the fixtures.

We are looking to get some opinion on who will prevail in these games.  You can do it via the ‘comments’ section below.  You don’t need to be registered, just go anonymous.  Give us the prediction to each game.
It’s just to get a bit of interest going…..and to help me make my predictions.  After my pitiful showing in recent rounds I need all the help I can get.
