Wexford vs Wicklow Leinster Football – Click for live score commentary

Leinster Football round 1 Wexford v Wicklow, Chadwicks Wexford Park, we have live score commentary for the game that throws in starting time of 1.30pm

Wexford vs Wicklow has the makings of the most competitive game in the Leinster Football Championship this weekend. The two sides were among the best in Division 4. However, Wicklow were the ones who earned promotion while Wexford came up just short.

Last weekend, these sides met in the final round of the League. The game was a promotion shoot-out with Wicklow claiming the spoils by three-points. Wicklow goalkeeper Mark Jackson was hugely influential on the result. He kicked three long-range frees that proved to be the difference. It was a twenty-minute spell in the second half that set Wicklow apart. Wexford failed to get on the scoreboard in that time and had too much to do in the closing moments.

Wexford returned to action the week before with a win over Limerick. It was an encouraging start to Shane Roche’s spell as manager after Paul Galvin stepped down. However, Wicklow halted their progress and Wexford face another year in Division 4.

There will be no second chances in the Championship this year with the qualifiers gone. So, Roche will be almost relieved his side have gotten a loss out of their system. Now, they can learn from what went wrong and apply it to Sunday’s game.

Paddy Power are unable to choose a favourite for this one. Both teams are Evens to advance. A draw is worth a look at 15/2.

The game is live on GAA GO.

Prediction: Draw.

Wexford vs Wicklow Division 4 – Click for preview and live score commentary

Wexford vs Wicklow Allianz Football League Division 4, we have preview, team news and live score commentary, game throws in at 2pm

There are only three games going ahead in the Division 4 National League this weekend due to London’s continued unavailability. All games have an important say in who will be promoted though. Firstly, the winner of Wexford vs Wicklow will secure themselves a Division 3 place. Next, Limerick will join them if they overcome Sligo. However, if the Connacht side win, they have an outside chance of squeezing into the top two. Likewise, Antrim are in the hunt for promotion but need to beat Waterford.

Last weekend, Wicklow were emphatic against Antrim. Their seven-goals was enough to win a game in itself. As a result, they are tied top of Division 4 and need one of the favourites for promotion.

But, Wexford returned to action with a win of their own. Despite going to Limerick with a depleted squad, they ran out three-point winners. That was a much-needed confidence boost for a team that has been shrouded with uncertainty. Paul Galvin stepped away as manager just a month before the restart. Then, four positive Covid-19 tests ruled out a host of players for Galvin’s replacement Shane Roche. With this in mind, Wexford’s win last weekend is even more impressive. If they can carry that momentum into round 7, they will see themselves in Division 3 next season.

Prediction: Wicklow.

Limerick could have sealed promotion with a result over Wexford. Instead, they need to defeat Sligo to go up to Division 3. They hit just three first-half points against Wexford. In fact, it took a triple substitution at the midpoint to give the Munster men a boost. Billy Lee will be keen to ensure his team start quicker this time around.

Sligo will relish the battle with Limerick. In their own restart, they lost to Carlow at the death. As a result, their promotion hopes have thinned. Yet, a win over Limerick would give make it possible. Paul Taylor’s side face Galway in the Championship two weeks later. A promotion would provide his team with much-welcome encouragement heading into this one. They have nothing to gain from a draw. So, expect them to play off the cuff.

Prediction: Limerick.

On Thursday morning, Waterford issued a lengthy statement announcing their concession of the round 7 game against Antrim. The statement cited players’ concerns over needing to isolate after travelling north of the border as the reason. However, Antrim have since offered to sacrifice their home game in order to fulfil the fixture.

As a result, the game will now take place in Dundalk. Antrim could have taken the two points from Waterford without even playing. But, they instead stated their desire to win the game in a deserving manner:  “We believe that the integrity of the league needs to be upheld. If we are good enough to collect two points we will do it in a fair and manly manner on the field of play.”

This game is effectively a dead-rubber for Waterford. Still, it is an opportunity to get some match practice ahead of the Championship. They play Limerick the following week in the Munster quarter-final.

A victory for Antrim will put them in the promotion mix. It’s a big ask though as other results also need to go their way. Last week, their thrashing at the hands of Wicklow left much to be desired.

Prediction: Antrim.
