Cork ace Shane Kingston says the Leesiders won’t be thinking about a league semi-final spot this weekend when they take on Wexford.

Should Galway defeat Clare on Sunday (throw-in 1.45pm) then a win for Cork over the Slaneysiders at Pairc Ui Chaoimh (throw-in 3.45pm) would see them earning a place in Division 1’s knock-out stages.

Speaking to ahead of this weekend’s Allianz Hurling League fourth round clashes, Kingston said that they are solely focused on the Model men’s visit.

“To be honest, we haven’t even discussed any of the games further down the line,” said the Douglas clubman.

“We’re just looking at each game as it comes – we were focusing on the Westmeath match and then the gym session, then training last week, back to the clubs for the league and then Wexford.

“You can’t be looking too far beyond anything.”

So far, the Rebels have hit eight goals in their opening three league outings and Kingston added that they will continue to try and use their pace up front to their advantage:

“You could say that we’ve been getting more goals over the last two or three years than in the seasons previous to that. I suppose it’s about making yourself aware of it and the team aware of it – we’d have a few fellas who are fairly fast so it’s about isolating that and using it to our advantage, going for the jugular as opposed to taking the easy point, really.”
