Despite his side's last-gasp win over Dublin in Croke Park, Wexford manager Davy Fitzgerald was unhappy with the amount of stoppages in the game.

Speaking to RTE afterwards, he complained: "It was probably one of the most frustrating games that I’ve ever been involved in.

"We’ve a great game. It’s important we mind it. In hurling you can blow up a free every minute or two if you want to. It’s important to be sensible."

Fitzgerald says the result will hold no relevance when the teams renew their rivalry in this year's Leinster SHC.

"We dogged out the game," he continued.

"Did we play as good as we could? No, but in fairness that was down to Dublin. They showed tremendous heart, and they were right down on top of us.

"This is mid-February. You’re not going to be reading into anything, because when we play the Dubs in Wexford Park in mid-May, it’s going to be completely different.

"The only thing I can take out of tonight is massive resilience because we were four down, and down to 13 men… and we hung in there."
