No point in whinging at our current plight – Power


By Denise O'Flaherty


Tipperary manager David Power believes the poor start his side made to the second half against Longford proved costly as they fell to a five point defeat on Sunday.

In the second half, meaning from the first minute to the 22nd minute we didn’t even have a shot or attack at their goals and that’s probably the period of time that we lost the game,” he admitted.

The third goal came from when we were running at them, we were actually getting joy off it. They counter attacked us and that was the third goal.”

This result leaves Tipperary in a precarious position; they need to get something out of their final two games against Offaly and Leitrim.

It’s Tipp football. There’ll be ups and downs,” Power added.

We have to get on with it. We could be whinging and complaining about this or that but we will keep fighting. We have two games now to make sure we keep our Division 3 status and that’s a must.”

Someone said 85% of the home teams have won in the league. Unfortunately we have four away games in this league and they being tough away games. After a good start we probably could’ve had a bit more on the board but we didn’t.”
