Wexford star Lee Chin says the Model men will have to be on their game when they meet Kerry in tomorrow afternoon’s All-Ireland SHC preliminary quarter-final in Tralee.
Darragh Egan’s men are set to face the Kingdom at Austin Stack Park (2pm) as 1/66 favourites to advance and Chin says the group are taking nothing for granted as they get set to head west.
"We have to be well prepared and we are," he told RTE Sport. "We saw them in the Joe McDonagh and some of the lads went up to that game. Our results so far mean that we have to give everything 100% focus.
"We’ve had a mixed bag championship, got results where we probably weren’t expected to, did get results where we weren’t expected to as well. But we’re happy enough keeping the talk down anyway. Kerry is the next focus, we’ll hopefully put in a performance down there and move on to the next day.
"We’re just grateful to be in the championship. We’re getting another chance at it as well. We’re coming down against an opposition that you wouldn’t regularly see much of, so it’s intriguing and, look, we’re going down at the weekend again with that attitude of it’s a knockout championship. You’ve got to be on your game."Tweet
