Fermanagh attacker Daryl Keenan insists Antrim are favourites to win Saturday night's Ulster derby at Casement Park.

The Erne County are sitting pretty on top of Division 3 of the Allianz League after winning their first two games, but Keenan believes they will be up against it in Belfast.

"We played Antrim a couple of years ago in the National League up in Casement Park and they turned us quite easily that night. It is going to be very difficult," he explained to Gaelic Life.

"They are an excellent side and they will be looking to bounce back after losing to Sligo. Both teams will be going all out to win.

"We have to be positive after two wins. Confidence would be high at the moment. The break came at the wrong time for us, as after three weeks off, it is hard to know where we sit. We know we face a massive challenge against Antrim. They had a good win over Cavan, so it is going to be a massive game."
