"They Dug Deep" - Justin McNulty On His Players' Victory Over Wicklow

A determined defensive performance from Laois was enough to overcome Wicklow in Aughrim.

Laois are still alive and kicking in the Tailteann Cup after securing victory over Wicklow yesterday afternoon.

After sharing the spoils at home to Carlow last time out, Justin McNulty's side were in need of a victory on the road to secure their passage to the knockout phase of the competition.

A strong defensive performance, punctuated by scores from the likes of Evan Carroll, Killian Roche, and Rioghan Murphy won Laois an 11 points to 10 success.

McNulty tells Midlands 103 commentator Pat O'Sullivan, his players are fighting for the jersey.

Division Two outfit, Fermanagh top the group after beating both Carlow and Wicklow already.

Elsewhere, Offaly's campaign stumbled from farce back to underwhelming.

They were comprehensively beaten by Limerick in Rathkeale 2-10 to 0-8.
