Cavan are set to take on Roscommon this weekend as the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship round-robin stage reaches its conclusion, with both teams needing a result to keep their Sam Maguire aspirations alive.

The Breffni Men will be looking to get their first win of the All-Ireland campaign after a difficult first two matches in the round-robin. Cavan started their round-robin campaign on the road in Castlebar where they took on Mayo. The home side would comfortably win 0-20 to 1-08.

Raymond Galligan's side would then play hosts to Dublin in round two, where the away side would run riot, scoring five goals on their way to a resounding 5-17 to 0-13 win at Breffni Park.

In Roscommon's case, they will be hoping to finally get on the board in the championship table after a rough start. The Rossies kicked off their campaign in front of near quarter-full Croke Park in a match against Leinster champions Dublin, where despite only being behind by one point at the break, Roscommon would ultimately fall to a 2-19 to 0-13 defeat. 

Davy Burke's side then welcomed Connacht rivals Mayo to Dr.Hyde Park, where second-half goals from Ryan O'Donoghue and Donnacha McHugh helped the away side get a 2-14 to 1-15.

With both teams winless, the county which wins this one will qualify for the preliminary quarter-finals in third place in group 2.


In the event of a draw, Roscommon would finish third thanks to their superior points difference.
