Nemo Rangers boss Paul O’Donovan says he side will need to hit an “eight or nine out of 10” if they are to overcome Corofin this weekend.

The Galway giants are 2/5 favourites to see off Nemo in Ennis on Saturday afternoon (throw-in 1.30pm) and maintain their march towards a third All-Ireland club SFC title in-a-row.

Speaking to the Irish Examiner, O’Donovan sees the midfield battle being crucial if his side are to pull off the upset at Cusack Park.

“We need to make sure we are not dragged out of position too much,” he stated.

“Whether or not we are good enough will be seen on Saturday. We have every confidence in our guys, but I realise that we need to be hitting an eight or nine out of 10 against this crowd. We can’t afford to be creating chances and missing them. If we create three goal chances, we need to take all of them.

"We need things to go right for us; the hop of the ball and the bit of luck. But I think we have prepared well and the lads are looking forward to it.”
