Wexford manager Paul McLoughlin doesn't believe that his charges are learning anything from their games to date.

Five defeats out of five in the campaign so far has left the Model County favourites for the drop straight back to Division Four.

They can still avoid the drop, but they have to win their last two games and hope that other results go their way if they are to have any chance of survival.

McLoughlin cut a dejected figure following their latest defeat to Offaly, which was the Faithful County's first win of the campaign.

"We are not learning from each game, which is disappointing," McLoughlin stated to the Wexford People. "We were simply not good enough against Offaly, we're not good enough."

McLoughlin refused to make excuses for the defeat when it was put to him that he has a very inexperienced squad at his disposal.

"I'm not going to continue to make excuses. We're simply not good enough, not learning from each game, to make the progress. We just have to bring our game to another level.

"Discipline is also an issue. We've spoken about discipline but we've had a player red carded in four of our five games. That in itself is bringing huge pressure and making it far more difficult.

"We've two huge games ahead, Derry next weekend, and then Armagh at home. We could not have asked for a more difficult finish."
