It’s really a case of winner takes all in Cookstown this afternoon as Gortin take on Moortown for a place in the top flight in 2012. Twelve months ago Moortown overcame Kildress at the same venue and they will be hoping for a similar result this afternoon. On the other hand Gortin overcame a much fancied Galbally side last weekend and they will believe they have what it takes to do the business.
