Jordanstown said exams, injuries and students representing their counties, were the reasons for pulling out of Wednesday's game.

UUJ lost their opening two games in Section C against Down and Antrim and the forfeiture will once again open up the County v College McKenna Cup controversy.

Joe Kernan has been appointed to mediate between counties and universities over players in a bid to help resolve the issue.

In the rest of Wednesday's fixtures, Tyrone face Armagh, Down take on Antrim and Derry play St Mary's.

Donegal also host Queen's University, and Fermanagh play Monaghan.

Donegal have named a strong side with Neil McGee and Neil Gallagher both set to make their first starts of the season.

Jim McGuinness' side need to win to have any hope of making the weekend's semi-finals.
