Joe Fortune is already focusing on what lies ahead after seeing his side win in Antrim.
Joe Fortune believes his Westmeath side's playing resources are stretched to their limits from the start of the season.
The Lake County enjoyed their first win of the year against Antrim last Saturday in the Walsh Cup, on a final scoreline of 0-15 to 0-13.
In other games in the competition, midlands counties have met division one sides with comparatively experimental selections.
The Westmeath manager says he's happy to get a win over Antrim but expects a tough campaign in Division 1A of the National League next month:
Westmeath being their league campaign away to Clare on February 5th.
