Carlow's Chris Nolan feels that they have a point to prove against Westmeath in Sunday's NHL 2A final.
The sides met in the opening round of the campaign and on that occasion it was Westmeath that came away from Netwatch Cullen Park with a merited victory.
Nolan stressed to the Carlow Nationalist that the Barrowsiders did not play to their potential on that occasion and he feels that they can prove that point in O'Moore Park this weekend.
"We knew coming out after the Westmeath game we hadn't performed. We had a man sent off that day. We knew we hadn't played to our potential.
"We are delighted to be back in the league final," said Nolan. "We lost a few in the last couple of years and want to get back up to Division 1B. We set our targets at the start of the year to get to a final. We are 70 minutes away from promotion."
