A draw or a win will be enough for Declan Bonner’s side to make the semi finals this Sunday.
Donegal can still progress if they lose depending on results in the other sections.

Derry meet U-U in Owenbeg in the other game in that section.
Armagh and Monaghan have an effective playoff for a semi final place tonight.
The Orchard County sit top of section B, but a Monaghan win at the Athetlic Grounds will see them progress to the last-4.
If Donegal and Armagh lose this evening, Armagh would be favourites to make the semi final’s as best runner up given their current better scoring difference.
