Wayne Kierans is looking forward to facing Dublin in the Leinster SFC quarter-final on Saturday week after his Louth side produced a turbo-charged finish to beat Wexford yesterday.

"Obviously, we now have Dublin to look forward to, but that display is something we’ve got to work upon. The victory will help give us momentum, so it’s a boost for Louth football who now have the All-Ireland champions to look forward to,” the Wee County boss is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.

“We probably made it a bit harder than we should, but credit to Wexford they kept on battling even when we started the second half well going into a two-point lead inside five minutes.

"Earlier in the league we were on the receiving end of narrow defeats but the lads learned a lot from that. It was just as well that we kept within distance of them, even when they had their periods of control. We’re just delighted to get out with the win.

“Last year we lost the opening round, but the lads after a good league campaign put in the effort, and it was that training which showed with the powerful finish."
