Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald believes that his native county Clare will come out all guns blazing in Sunday’s NHL 1A clash between the sides.

Fitzgerald brings his Wexford team to Cusack Park where the former Clare goalkeeper and manager has spent many a day, this weekend.

Last weekend, he was an interested spectator in Pairc Ui Rinn as Cork defeated Clare in the league, and Fitzgerald was of the same mindset of many who saw the game in that the best team lost on the day.

“I was actually down in Cork at the Clare game last weekend and to be honest, I felt the better team lost,” said Fitzgerald.

“I thought Clare did quite well but, at the end, it just slipped away. They should have been up at half time by about six or seven points and I think everyone would agree with that.

“I expect a real sting in the tail from Clare on Sunday. I expect them to come out all guns blazing because they will be disappointed with the last day.

“Everyone in Wexford knows that we are going to be meeting a Clare team that will be well up for it. Cusack Park is a place that is special for Clare and I know in my time, we always targeted winning games there.”
