Lucan United’s charge back toward the top flight picked up pace after they won a West Dublin derby over the weekend.

The LSL Senior 1 Sunday side looked in real trouble against Clondalkin side Collinstown when they went down to 10 men after just 30 minutes upon their return to league action.

However, they managed to secure their 15th win of the season thanks to goals from Luke Walsh and Jamie Doyle.

The victory moves United 10 points clear of Tolka Rovers in third and Ballymun United in fourth, meaning they should have enough done to secure a return to Senior Sunday.

The focus may now switch to going up as champions. To do that they have to overtake Gleb –  who defeated Skerries Town over the weekend to make it eight on the bounce without defeat – and the fact they have two games in hand suggests it’s anything but an impossible task.

Another West Dublin side Glenville made sure the race for the final promotion spot remains extremely interesting by defeating Tolka Rovers in Palmerstown. Niall Gleeson put the hosts a goal to the good before half time with Dave Cunnigham and Colin Dunne making sure of the result with second-half strikes.

The result leaves third place Tolka and Pats CY on 28 points with Ballymun United not far behind on 26, Glenville are next in line with an outside chance of a promotion push on 21.

Kilbarrack United continued their Senior 1A dominance by scoring over five goals for the third time in their last five league games, increasing their cushion at the top to 15 points.

Deric Hyland bagged another hat trick as the North Dublin side put six past  Arklow Town at home on Friday night.

Former Junior International Mark Townley also found the back of the next as did Gav Gaughan and Aaron Humphries.

St Francis defeated fellow Saints, John Bosco to make it four wins on the trot and cement second place in the third tier.

Stephen Dunne celebrated his return to first team action with the game’s only goal, a bullet header come set piece time.

Cian Duffy scored four as Templegoue United put six past Tullamore Town to close the gap on third place Swords Celtic to just four points.  

Club captain Conor Leacy presented a bouquet of flowers and club pennant to the visiting Tullamore Town captain before kick-off to honour the memory of Ashling Murphy.
