BANAGHER will be hoping to book a place in the Ulster Intermediate Club Championship final when they meet Cavan champions Mullahoran on Saturday evening.

Easy wins over Belnaleck and Glenfin has given the St. Mary's a great deal of momentum and they are quietly fancied to beet the Breffni men and book a final meeting with either Tattyreagh of Tyrone or Antrim champions St. Enda's.

However, Mullahoran will not be easy: they were Cavan senior champions as recently as 2012 and have won 12 senior titles in their proud history.

Banagher will look to the class and experience of former Derry star Mark Lynch and the tireless enthusiasm of team captain Paul Cartin, 20 years on the side.

They will not under-estimate their opponents who are backboned by the O'Reillys and Bradys, in particular county players Killian Brady and Enda Reilly.

Banagher have scored 4-24 and conceded just 0-17 on their way to the last four and their ability to score goals may be the deciding factor in an intriguing match-up.
