Down remain unbeaten after their league campaign.

Westmeath's Ronan O'Toole insists that his side can't "play the occasion" at Croke Park this weekend

His side take on Down in the Division 3 final on Saturday evening, having already secured promotion to Division 2. 

They'll be hoping to bounce back from last week's defeat to Sligo when they face the Ulster side, who they drew with in Mullingar earlier this month.

O'Toole claims that although he knows it will be a tough challenge, the game is there to be won:

Midlands 103 Analyst, Gerry Buckley is expecting Dessie Dolan to keep his cards close to his chest ahead of the Croke Park decider.

Buckley says the injury situation keeps everyone guessing on the Westmeath selection.

As things stand, John Heslin has been named to start on the bench at GAA HQ.

Buckley looks forward to the game with Midlands 103's Joe Dillon:

The Division Three finals gets underway at 7.15pm on Saturday.
