What are the match odds?
Cork are favorites at 8/15 with tip 15/8 and the draw is 9/1.
What do the managers say?
“We have a league game and that is against Cork and Cork still have something to play.
“It’s our last game and we want to finish on a high note.”
“The most beautiful thing for me is that the boys played for each other, they played for the jersey and they played for the fans who were here.
“One of the players said afterwards it sounded like 10,000 Cork people coming down the track. I’m not sure how many were here, but by God, they made themselves heard.
“It was a season-defining game in many ways. Winning it keeps us alive, but that’s all it does.
“Next Sunday is a big game now and we have to support it now because if we don’t we’re out of the league.”
