Manager's Comment: “This is a really big game for us and of course Cork are coming here on the back of a fabulous run of form. A really good performance is needed on Saturday night especially in front of our home fans and the TV cameras. While we badly need a result it will be important to keep our focus and to keep the belief in ourselves and in our ability” – Jeff Kenna.
