Westmeath boss Pat Flanagan is desperate for his side to get the win they need to stay in Division 2 of the National Football League.
The Lake County are bottom of the table going into the final day of the campaign, but a win against Derry would see Flanagan's men avoid the drop, with five teams under threat.
"My reading of the situation is that we're safe if we win, and that's what we're all fully focused on doing," Flanagan told the Westmeath Independent.
Westmeath have suffered several demoralising results this season, but the manager is delighted to be in with a hope of retaining Westmeath's second-flight position.
He said: “If anybody, at the start of the campaign, had given me the chance to win our last game, at home in Cusack Park, to maintain Division 2 status, I'd have bitten their hand off."
