Davy Fitzgerald was already looking forward to next weekend's do-or-die Leinster SHC clash with Kilkenny after Wexford's win over Carlow last evening.

The Model County manager likened it to a provincial semi-final for his side who must avoid defeat to reach the Leinster final.

"We'll try and relax tonight and tomorrow we'll start thinking of that. Any time you play Kilkenny, you know what you get. We've beaten them twice this year and they're going to come absolutely flat out to beat us. I know that," he said in an interview with RTE.

"The Leinster championship is going to go down to the wire. You could be out of it if results don't go your way. And we haven't lost a game yet. We just don't know what's going to happen. We're going to have to improve a bit on that tonight but we'll get ready and see what happens.   

"Effectively, it's a Leinster semi-final for us. We have to win to have any ambitions of playing in it, even though we haven't lost any games yet. Let's bring it on, it's going to be very entertaining next week."
