Brian Lohan was happy to see Clare pick up a hard-earned victory in the Allianz Hurling League at Parnell Park.
Lohan's charges recovered from the concession of two first half goals to beat Dublin 0-34 to 2-23, inspired by the brilliant Tony Kelly who finished with a personal tally of 0-20.
The Banner County's manager was naturally pleased with the result and turned his attentions to a clash against Kilkenny.
"Happy with the display. We kind of put ourselves under pressure coming up here to get a performance," Lohan said.
"We were happy enough with how we played in the first half, even though we went in after conceding those two goals. Defending those two goals were the only things we did badly in the first half.
"You're under pressure to win every game that you play. While we're happy enough to get the victory here, we've got a good test coming next Saturday in Cusack Park. Kilkenny are the benchmark."Tweet
