Leitrim manager Terry Hyland is in no doubt that two points are essential against Limerick on Saturday.

The unbeaten Connacht side hit the road to Kilmallock this weekend and they go into the game with a great deal of confidence.

However, Hyland has urged an air of caution to the players as he feels this is a league defining game against the Shannonsiders.

“Saturday’s game is no different than the Antrim game. There is a lot to be got out of it regards the league so of course we’re looking forward to it,” said Hyland.

“It is a do or die game for Limerick. They have two choices – they can go and win the game ad keep their hat in the ring or if they are beaten, chances are they are gone.

“It is like a championship game for Limerick so you have to treat it that way as well. It puts a different spin on where the opposition is coming from.”
