It’s two wins from two for Antrim in hurling’s Joe McDonagh Cup as they beat Carlow by 2-16 to 0-19.

SOCCER

It’s the final day of the Premier League with 3rd and 4th places still to be decided

With Spurs guaranteed a top 4 spot it’s only a matter of 3rd or 4th for them. They host Leicester in their final game at their adopted Wembley home

Chelsea or Liverpool will miss out on a top 4 spot depending on how results go for them

Chelsea are away to Newcastle while Liverpool host Brighton

The only other action of any potential consequence is the unlikely scenario that could see Swansea stay up.

They’re 3 points behind Southampton and are 9 goals worse off, meaning they need a big win against Stoke and hope that Southamptom suffer a big loss to Champions Man City.

All games kick off at 3pm

Aston Villa held on for a narrow 1-nil win in the first leg of their Skybet Championship Play-off semi-final away to Middlesbrough at the Riverside.
