Following their controversial 2-15 to 0-21 draw last weekend, St Thomas and Loughrea will renew acquaintances this Sunday in Kenny Park at 3.30pm in the county quarter-final replay. The referee is the experienced Alan Kelly.
A concern for St Thomas manager John Burke is his side’s lack of goals. They have only raised one green flag now in five championship games and they may need one or two goals this weekend to get by a resilient Loughrea.
In last weekend’s other championship quarter-final games, there were narrow victories for Craughwell over Liam Mellows (0-21 to 2-14 ), and Gort over Portumna (1-19 to 0-19 ). Sarsfields had a very impressive 2-14 to 0-12 win over Padraig Pearses.
