Neither side have picked up a point this far as they now bid to avoid the dreaded drop.

Limerick knew they would have to face a relegation play-off since March 12 after they lost out to Clare in the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

Offaly were confirmed as their opponents a fortnight later.

With a high number of new faces integrating into the squad, Joh Lillis side have been competitive while failing to pick up a win thus far.
