Wexford to edge a scorefest

Big pitch, two teams that like to play expansive football... game on.

Teams are naturally more cavalier in the league but no team has been as carefree as Wexford, scoring 10-110 and conceding 13-71.

Table-toppers Longford have scored 29 points less (half as many goals) but have conceded 8-8 less than their opponents this evening.

Former AFL player Michael Quinn has been a revelation at centre-back but doubts over Sean McCormack’s fitness could hurt Longford’s attack.

Wexford are missing a few key personnel themselves but their first-choice attack is for the most part intact and they will be comfortable in these environs. Expect a high-scoring affair with Wexford’s nous probably decisive.

LONGFORD: D Sheridan; D Brady, B Gilleran, D Reilly; C Smyth, M Quinn, S Mulligan; B McElvaney, J Keegan; P McCormack, P Barden, N Mulligan, D McElligot, S McCormack, B Kavanagh.

WEXFORD: A Masterson; R Tierney, G Molloy, N Murphy; B Malone, D Murphy, A Flynn; A Shore, D Waters; R Barry, C Lyng, B Brosnan; C Morris, E Bradley, PJ Banville.

Verdict: Wexford
