Wexford dug deep to defeat Brian Cody’s Kilkenny team last weekend. Late in the second-half, the Yellowbellies were a point down and playing into a gale-force wind.
The introduction of Wexford’s marquee players such as Lee Chin, Dee O’Keeffe, Rory O’Connor and Matt O’Hanlon off the bench helped steer the Model County to a hard-fought two-point victory.
Davy Fitzgerald’s charges are out again this Saturday evening, where they’ll travel to headquarters to face Dublin in Croke Park. A win against Dublin would see Wexford advance to the next stages of the competition with a game against Carlow still to play.
Ahead of this Saturday’s Allianz Hurling League game, major Irish bookmakers have priced the Model County as clear favourites.
The Wexford game will be apart of a double-header, with the Dublin vs Donegal footballers on afterwards underlights, which is sure to be a great day out.
If you’re looking for transport to that game, Wexford Weekly are running a bus for just €15 return with pick-up points in Wexford, Enniscorthy, Ferns and Gorey.
