Following Cork's victory over Waterford last evening, John Meyler was already turning his thoughts to next weekend's trip to Ennis where a victory over Clare would guarantee their progress to the All-Ireland series and could earn them a Munster SHC final place for the third year in-a-row.

"We go to Ennis now on Sunday, and we need another win to make sure we stay in the top three in Munster," the Cork manager told Sky Sports.

"It's a quick turnover. You've got to perform again and be consistent with that performance. We matched that performance against Limerick three weeks ago, and we have got to go again. Going to Ennis is going to be extremely difficult, extremely hard. It's a critical game for us."

Despite racking up 2-30 at Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Meyler says there is room for improvement.

"The work-rate was good. At times we were a small bit sloppy, losing ball. But I was pleased by the overall performance. A few substitutions made a huge change to the match. Tim O'Mahony and Shane Kingston came on, but we've another tough, difficult match to come," he added.
