All eyes will be on Croke Park on Saturday when Dublin v Wexford takes place at 5pm. We have a preview, team news and betting below. We also have live score updates.
Both sides are even steven on points coming into this game. Dublin have played three gaes winning two and losing one. They suffered a heavy loss to Kilkenny on the opening weekend, however they followed that up with wins over Laois and Carlow where they won 0-20 to 0-09 last weekend. Dublin will look to players like Oisin O’Rorke, Rian McBride, Eoghan O’Donnell and Sean Moran
Davy Fitzgerald side are also in flying form. They will prove a tough nut to crack here again. They have 2 wins from 3 games also. The loss coming narrowly to Clare, while they recorded wins over Laois and most recent a 1-16 to 1-14 win over Kilkenny. Speaking after the game Davy said, “We’re delighted to get the victory,”. He continued, “The way we used the ball, and our composure in the last 7 or 8 minutes was very good, I thought”. “Every game to me is important. I was asked could I get to a league semi-final or final, and I honestly don’t look at it like that”. Players like Conor McDonald, Kevin Foley and Liam Ryan will be key here once again.
Dublin: Sean Brennan, Paddy Smyth, Eoghan O’Donnell, James Madden, Cian O’Callaghan, Daire Gray, Sean Moran, Chris Crummey, Jake Malone, Donal Burke, Rian McBride, John Hetherton, Oisin O’Rorke, Ronan Hayes, Dave Keogh
Wexford: Mark Fanning; Conor Firman, Liam Ryan, Joe O’Connor; Damien Reck, Paudie Foley, Shaun Murphy; Kevin Foley, Diarmuid O’Keeffe; Aidan Rochford, Aidan Nolan, Jack O’Connor; Paul Morris, Michael Dwyer, Rory O’Connor.
Wexford are 8/13 favourites with Dublin at 13/8. Wexford for me are in top form and I expect them to win by 3 or 4 points here. Dublin v Wexford is live on Eir Sport at 5pm. If you can’t make it though follow our updates.
