Liam Cahill cut a contented figure after Tipperary's Allianz Hurling League victory over Galway at FBD Semple Stadium.
While unimpressed with certain aspects of Tipp's performance, Cahill was pleased with how they finished the game after Galway had got back on level terms with eight minutes remaining.
"Galway got five scores in-a-row without a reply from us and that's obviously something we'll have to look at," the Tipperary manager told RTÉ.
"Delighted with the heart of the boys to be able to keep the scoreboard ticking over and make good decisions when it was really in the melting pot there near the end. Just delighted to get out with the two points.
"With the way the league is structured, it's important now that we have safety from the dreaded bottom two where you get the opportunity to make sure that you have Division 1-type hurling next year."Tweet
