Davy Fitzgerald was thrilled with Wexford's second half performance against Cork.

Trailing by 0-10 to 1-9 at the interval, the Slaneysiders turned on the style after the restart to run out impressive 0-21 to 1-14 winners and maintain their 100 per cent record in Division 1A of the Allianz Hurling League.

"I think the players showed an incredible desire to take their game to the top level," the Wexford manager enthused in the Irish Daily Star.

"In the second half, the lads were incredible. There's a great spirit and a great intent about them and the way we finished out the game was heart-warming.

"We were everyone's favourites to be relegated, but we have four points from two games. We simply over-ran and over-powered them in the closing 10 minutes. Once we cut out the unforced errors, playing the ball quickly into the forwards, we were much more competitive."

The Sixmilebridge native was also fulsome in his praise of the Wexford supporters, who once again turned out at Innovate Wexford Park in their thousands.

"They make such a difference. Even when we're doing things wrong, they're not negative. If you get negative, it affects us, the players.

"We're not going to get over the line, if they're not behind us, and, in fairness, the Wexford support has been incredible. That's why I enjoy coming down. They don't get on your back, and long may it continue."
