Clare defender David Fitzgerald expects his namesake and fellow countyman to have Wexford fired up for Saturday's All-Ireland SHC quarter-final.
An All-Ireland winning goalkeeper and manager with his native Banner County, Davy Fitz' is in charge of the Model County side that'll do battle with Clare in the year's first major knockout hurling championship clash at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
"I knew he'd go into management again. He's really driven that way. He's good. You see what he's done with Wexford. They're really All-Ireland contenders at the minute," Inagh-Kilnamona clubman Fitzgerald told gaa.ie.
"He will get the best out of you no matter what, he'll have every player driven. I suppose it's evident in Wexford, the strides they've made.
"They were very unlucky this year not to make the Leinster final, there was only a puck of a ball between themselves and Kilkenny, below in Nowlan Park. It'll be the same on Saturday."
