Kingston not getting carried away


Cork manager Kieran Kingston insists he isn’t getting carried away after his side secured their first win of the Allianz Leagues campaign with victory over Tipperary.

The Rebels ran out 2-24 to 1-25 winners in a high quality game at Parc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday to banish the memory of their disappointing defeat to Waterford in round one.

Reigning All-Ireland champions Tipperary are still waiting for their first win of the new campaign following their defeat to league champions Limerick at Semple Stadium in round one.

Speaking after the game, Kingston said: "We are obviously delighted with the performance we put in.

"This team has been criticised in different quarters for lack of consistency. Tonight doesn’t make us a consistent team. It’s one game.

"We weren’t a bad team after last Sunday and we are not a brilliant team after tonight. It’s one win, we are not getting carried away."

Kingston reserved special praise for returning duo Colm Spillane and Alan Cadogan following lengthy injury layoffs.

"It was important to get game time into those guys,” he added.

“They were coming back from long-term injuries and you saw how they equipped themselves really well."
