Antrim have proposed to play their home Allianz Football League Division 4 clash with Waterford in Dundalk.

Originally scheduled for Kelly Park in Portglenone, near Ballymena, on Saturday afternoon, the game has been postponed after the Deise "had no choice but to concede" the hosts a walkover over player welfare concerns with their employers "stipulating that a 14 day isolation period would be required on return from Northern Ireland."

But Antrim have responded to their opponents decision this evening by offering to meet them south of the border, adding in a tweet: "We believe that the integrity of the league needs to be upheld. 

"If we are good enough to collect two points we will do it in a fair and manly manner on the field of play."
