Tipp great Kelly hails "Davy Fitz factor"


Tipperary legend Eoin Kelly has hailed the positive impact Davy Fitzgerald has had as manager of the Wexford hurlers.

Speaking ahead of Wexford's trip to take on the Premier County, which you can see live on eir Sport 2 on Saturday evening [throw-in 19.00], Kelly believes the former Clare All-Ireland winning manager has instilled a winning mentality into the senior county team.

“You look at Wexford top of the table, it’s brilliant for hurling, it’s brilliant for Wexford people,” he said on eir Sport’s Match Night Live. “They’ve really got behind their team.

“If Wexford win tonight they’ve probably qualified for the quarter-finals of the league….there’s a couple of key fixtures this weekend, at the bottom of the table with Kilkenny and Waterford but I think Wexford have been the story of Division 1A.

“Mikey Ryan said during the week that the Davy Fitz factor is real. It definitely is. He has galvanized his team, they’re really hurling for him.

“The winning mentality is in that Wexford dressing room and the most important thing, I mentioned already, the supporters in the town are behind them.”

eir Sport has live and exclusive coverage of 17 Saturday matches in the 2018 Allianz Football and Hurling Leagues. Coverage continues on Saturday evening with 2016 All-Ireland winners Tipperary hosting Wexford at Semple Stadium in hurling's Division 1A [live on eir Sport 2, throw in 7pm], while Limerick face Dublin at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick in Division 1B [live on eir Sport 1, throw-in 7pm].
