The Courtwood footballers are just one step away reaching the Leinster club intermediate final.

And after Eddie Kinsella’s men travelled to Louth two weeks ago, they are back on the road again today against Two Mile House.

The Kildare champions go into the game as favourites following wins over Westmeath side Shandonagh in Round 1 and then Dublin champions Round Towers Lusk in the quarter-finals.

Courtwood ended their 31 year wait for an IFC crown two months ago and went into the game against St Mochtas of Louth in quarter final as outsiders with the bookies – so they won’t be phased by that at all today.

They have got concerns though as two of their main men are doubtful for the game.

Niall Donoher was forced off injured two weeks ago and the IFC Player of the Year is in a race against time to be fit.

Meanwhile, there are also doubts over Luke Doran. If neither of them make it, perhaps the likes of Cian Doyle, Luke Doyle or Paddy Wilson will start instead.

As for their opponents today, Two Mile House won the All-Ireland Junior football championship in 2014 and are now looking to repeat the trick at a higher grade.

The House are strong defensively and has two great Kildare players past and present in their ranks in the form of Peter Kelly and Chris Healy.

Kildare senior footballer and former All-Star Peter Kelly is one of their star men, and despite making his name as a corner-back with Kildare, he has been a driving force at midfield for his club this year.

They scored four goals in their quarter final win over Round Tower Lusk and Courtwood will be hoping to keep them out on that front first and foremost.

The game throws in at 1.30pm in St Conleth’s Park in Newbridge and you can follow all the action as it happens below:
