Sligo and Limerick currently set the pace in Division Four, but both face demanding away assignements this weekend.
Paul Taylor's team, with Paddy O'Connor impressing, have collected victories over London and Armagh.
The trip to Aughrim, though, to face Davy Burke's well organised Wicklow promises to be an interesting fixture.
Limerick can also expect a tough test at Netwatch Cullen Park especially after Carlow's loss to Wexford last weekend.
That was a disappointing result for Carlow, who will be striving to respond quickly.
London were competitive against Limerick, but they still suffered a loss.
Antrim make the trip to Ruislip on Sunday following a reversal at Markievicz Park.
Despite the loss Lenny Harbinson will be fairly satisfied with how his mixture of emerging and established players are performing.
On Saturday Paul Galvin's Wexford - prompted by the sharp Ben Brosnan - will be hoping to build on the Carlow triumph.
Waterford have endured two defeats so far, though, and will be looking to put points on the board themselves.
So it should be competitive, but Wexford know that a second straight triumph would leave them in a very healthy position.
WATERFORD (v Wexford): Paudie Hunt; Darach O Cathasaigh, Brian Looby, Robbie Flynn; Darragh Corcoran, Sean O'Donovan, Dermot Ryan; Corey Kennedy, Mike Kiely; Dylan Guiry, Jason Curry, Jason Gleeson; Conor Murray, Brian Lynch, Stephen Curry.
