McIlroy wary of Antrim

Ulster Interprovincial medalist Tommy McIlroy expects Fermanagh's 100 per cent record in Division 3 of the Allianz League to come under serious threat from Antrim tomorrow night.

Peter Canavan's charges have made an excellent start to the campaign with wins over Wicklow and Roscommon, and another victory in Casement Park would not only allay their relegation worries, but would also leave them in a strong position to challenge for back-to-back promotions.

"It's early days yet," McIlroy stressed to the Fermanagh Herald.

"We have only two games played and there are four big games ahead in as many weeks. But we are certainly looking forward to our next game and it won't be an easy one.

"They're a strong side, they have a couple of good lads and they have (Sean) McVeigh back from London, and they have forwards we will definitely have to keep our eyes on, but we're hoping to keep our winning streak going."
