Cuthbert: Sligo tie our All-Ireland
24 Jul 2014 11:11
Cork football manager Brian Cuthbert has described their meeting with Sligo in Saturday’s round 4A footballer qualifier in Tullamore as “our All-Ireland final”.
-
While accepting that his side are favourites to advance past the Yeats County, Cuthbert is nevertheless viewing the O’Connor Park clash as an opportunity for redemption following the heavy defeat by Kerry in the Munster final.
-
The Rebels came in for much criticism in the provincial decider. “Spineless” and “shambolic” were some of the words used to describe the performance.
-
Now comes the chance to make amends. Cuthbert has made wholesale changes to the side for Saturday’s game. Youth is given its chance, and established names like Fintan Goold and Daniel Goulding have to make do with a place on the bench.
-
“The Kerry defeat was a bitter pill to swallow but we are fortunate now to have another chance," Cuthbert said in an interview with RTÉ Sport.
-
“We have this game [against Sligo]. It’s our All-Ireland final. We are going into the game as favourites but it will be a massive battle for us.
-
"If we win the game we’re in Croke Park on the August Bank Holiday weekend and that’s where we wanted to be from the start of the year. We’ll then face Mayo and that will be another tough battle
-
“Whatever way you get to the August Bank Holiday weekend, it doesn’t matter.
-
“For us we need to get the cards marked up again after what we produced against Kerry."
