Wexford attacker Mattie Forde knows that his side will have to improve on their scoring rate if they are to dethrone Dublin in the Leinster SFC final in three weeks' time.
The ace forward kicked eight wides last week, in his side's semi-final victory over Laois.
And with Westmeath amassing nine second half wides against Dublin yesterday, Forde is aware that Wexford cannot afford to have a mis-firing attack as they try to halt the Dubs' quest for a fourth successive provincial crown.
"As long as we create the chances that's the main thing. It's something for us to work on, and me in particular, before the Leinster final," Forde said.
"If we came out with the perfect performance (against Laois) we would have nothing to work on but we have plenty to work on before we play Dublin."
The Kilanerin player was in action for his club against Shamrocks on Friday night in the Wexford senior hurling championship, but was on the losing side (2-11 to 1-10).
Next weekend Forde pulls on his club football jersey as the Wexford SFC gathers pace.
It is an unfortunate set of circumstances according to Forde that there is a heavy schedule of club action before the Leinster decider.
"We have a few weekends of club championship action in the next couple of weeks," he said.
"It's going to be a bit of an upset but I think we aren't going to gain much from it in terms of fitness and everything.
"It's just to keep lads focused, it's great to be there (in the final) and we intend to make the best of it."
But Forde says that this is not going to shift the focus away from gaining a first Leinster SFC title for the Model county since 1956.
"We have been 52 years waiting to get to a Leinster final and now, who is to say it could be the same length again? So we are going to have a right rattle at it and put everything into it."
And the former All Star, who scored six points against Laois in his side's 0-18 to 0-12 semi-final win, is also delighted to see teams like Fermanagh, Down and Wexford showing that football is in a healthy state.
Those three counties were all in Division 3 of the National Football League this year, and Forde says that this is one of the most open championships in years.
"Football has probably never been more open that it is at the moment and more competitive, and I think that's great for the game.
"If you are looking at the same teams getting to semi-finals and finals every year it can get a bit monotonous.
"I think there is a bigger spread of talent and of people capable of winning the football championship in all of the provinces at the moment, and that can only be for the betterment of the game," he added.
