Laois Players Have Diagnosed Croke Park Performance Issues - David Dooley

The Rosenallis forward has been named to start in the half forward line on Saturday.

Wides, missed goal opportunities, and conceding at the other end at the wrong time.

That's David Dooley's assessment as to why Laois lost to Offaly in the Joe McDonagh Cup Final ahead of the O'Moore County's meeting with Wexford in the All Ireland series this weekend.

Dooley and his team mates come into Saturday's meeting with Keith Rossiter's side hopeful they can spring surprise against a Wexford side that managed to beat Galway in the Leinster Championship, but were held to a draw against Offaly in league action.

The former Leinster rugby player says alongside 18 wides, it's clear why they missed out in Croke Park last week:

Willie Maher has named his starting 15 for the championship meeting in Portlaoise.

As things stands, Maher is ready to break-up Laois' midfield pairing of Aiden Corby and Paddy Purcell despite the pair hitting a combined 9 points against Offaly.

Laois against Wexford throws in on Saturday evening at 5pm in O'Moore Park.
