Both sides are in league action this weekend, seeking to bounce back after making difficult starts to 2018 last week.
The firsts host Kilnamanagh AFC in what has the look of a crucial fixture in LSL Major 1B. The visitors currently occupy the relegation zone, having failed to win a single match all season other than the return fixture in Tallaght, when Seaford were punished for a dismal performance with a 2-0 defeat. Last season, the two encounters between the two dies couldn't have been more different, with Kilnamanagh edging a bizarre early-season match in Rockfield Park with a 6-7 win, before Seaford got their own back in early 2017, as Stephen Kelly netted the only goal of a drab game.
Seaford will be keen to make up for the disappointment suffered a week ago when they returned empty-handed from a tense match at St James's Gate having conceded a 93rd minute winner.
The seconds are also smarting from their first result of the year, after being outclassed by an impressive Mid Sutton Sportslink side in the Deane Cup. Tony Bennett's men return to league action in Co. Kildare against Blessington FC. Seaford completed a league double over the man in green in 2016/17, with a comfortable 3-0 win on the road in December followed up by a late-season home win inspired by a Carl Doyle hat-trick, even though Blessington did manage to inflict a defeat in the cup in between, in Arctic conditions in Crosschapel.
