Wexford boss Davy Fitzgerald says he expects nothing else but a battle in this Saturday’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1 quarter-final against Galway.  

Speaking at yesterday's launch of the 20th annual KN Group All-Ireland GAA Golf Challenge, the Clare man says he has no doubt that his opposite number Micheál Donoghue will be up for the occasion in Salthill.

"Donoghue always seems to get up for me, I don't know what the story is. Every time he plays me he's like a lunatic,” Fitzgerald stated.

"I was watching him on the sideline the last day and he wasn't so bad when I was watching the tape back. So no doubt he will. He's always managed to get right up for it. Maybe I haven't been up for it enough when I've played him. Maybe I need to have a look at that, you know.”

On the 2017 All-Ireland winning manager’s tenure, he added: "I think he's done a great job with them. They travel back a lot in numbers, they work very hard. So it'll be interesting because in the Walsh Cup they were very intense with us. They came down to do a job that day and they did it ...and they hadn't many of their first 15 playing. We know we're going to be in a battle."
