Tipperary boss David Power says he is keen for his players to “drive on now” and aim for a great performance against Mayo this Sunday.

The Premier men tore up the script last month in downing Cork for a first Munster SFC final triumph in 85 years and Power reckons his side will going into their showdown against the Connacht champions at Croker “with really great confidence”.

“I think I said it before the Munster final we are kind of a team that gets better with better opposition,” he told GAA.ie.

“We have some very good players and it was actually incredible, I couldn't get over the odds going into the Munster final, because we have a lot of players that have won Sigerson Cup medals, have played in an All-Ireland semi-final, that have played in U21 All-Irelands, have played in All-Ireland minor finals. You name it, there's a huge amount of experience there.

“I'm not happy, I want to drive on now. I feel we have an opportunity, like the very same going into the Cork game, if we get a performance, I really do think we have a great chance again.

“I think we have to use the Munster final as a kind of a stepping stone. These lads are certainly not happy with just winning a Munster final, we're looking towards the Mayo game and I think we're going to be going in with really great confidence.”
