Last updated on .From the section Gaelic Games
Antrim footballers set up a Division 4 promotion decider with Offaly next weekend after edging out Wicklow in a tense game at Corrigan Park on Sunday.
CJ McGourty hit 1-6 as Antrim moved into a 1-10 to 0-9 lead but Wicklow hit three late points to leave Frank Fitzsimons's Saffrons holding on.
Antrim looked in a degree of trouble as Wicklow led 0-6 to 0-1 but the Saffrons hit four points before half-time.
McGourty's goal moved Antrim four ahead with 10 minutes left.
Longford are guaranteed a promotion spot after their 0-13 to 0-10 win over Offaly who will have another chance to book their Division 3 place in next weekend's game against the Saffrons at Tullamore.
Offaly have a superior scoring different to Antrim so a draw will see the Leinster county clinching promotion.
Fitzsimons says next weekend's contest will effectively be a "final" for his side.
"We're very, very pleased with today's result. We knew Wicklow would be a tough test for us," said the Antrim manager.
"CJ scored a real poacher's goal for us but everybody knows that CJ is a top-class forward."
