Defiant Tipperary football manager Liam Kearns declared “there’s nothing decided yet” after his side’s loss to Cork in the National Football League at Semple Stadium on Saturday evening, which plunged his side into the thick of a relegation battle to division three.

With two games to play Tipperary have three points, similar to Cork and Clare. They travel to Kildare first and then entertain Clare in their last game of the campaign with Liam Kearns predicting it will go down to the last game.

These are all must-win games,” he began.

It’s very tight and there are no easy games left for anybody. There’s nothing decided yet.

There are two games left and it will be tough. Kildare away will be tough and then we have Clare at home and it is looking like it will go down to the last games.”

The good news for Tipp is that there is an easing of the injury crisis. The manager confirmed that Michael Quinlivan, Gavin Whelan, Evan Comerford, Paidi Feehan are all available again after injury to face Kildare and there is a possibility that Shane O'Connell too may be in the reckoning. This will give the manager a stronger hand as he faces into a few weeks that will determine Tipperary’s league standing for 2020.
