If We're Second Best On Saturday It's Not Good Enough - Willie Maher

Laois and Down will play for promotion back to Division One this weekend.

Laois won't be taking their league semi-final opponents for granted this weekend, according to their manager Willie Maher.

Maher saw his team recover from a slow start in O'Moore Park to beat Kerry on a final score line of 4-20 to 1-19.

Laois fielded a much changed outfit, with the likes of Stephen 'Picky' Maher ,David Dooley, and Aaron Dunphy all expected to come back in to the starting 15 for their promotion decider against Down on Saturday.

The O'Moore County manager says their opponents this weekend should have beaten his side when they met last month.

Down were superb here the first day, we won by seven, it absolutely flattered us.

Maher looks back over his side's performance against Kerry, and looks forward to Saturday's meeting with Down, with Midlands 103's Pat O'Sullivan:
