Moorefield captain Daryl Flynn says that Rathnew's confidence will be "sky-high" heading into this Sunday's Leinster club SFC semi-final at Aughrim.
The Wicklow champions return to the Garden County stronghold for the first time since springing a huge upset against provincial favourites St Vincent's 11 days ago and Flynn knows that the Newbridge club will be coming up against a side which will be in an ideal place this weekend.
"They will and rightly so. Vincent's, I think they were favourites for the All-Ireland never mind Leinster, so their confidence will be sky-high," Flynn told GAA.ie.
"We'll just have to go down there and expect the same fight they put up against Vincent's. Everyone's saying they'll dog us but watching the game they didn't fight Vincent's, they just outplayed them, outscored them and beat them.
"It's going to be a huge battle down there and it's one we're looking forward to. It's been great training this time of year.
"All the other clubs are probably going back doing the pre-season and we're still training, we're in the Leinster championship.
"There's a great buzz around the club and obviously it's the same in Rathnew, Loman's and Simonstown so it's good."
