St. Patricks Ballyragget manager Jim Lyng is expecting Dicksboro to react in a very positive way after their 10 point defeat against James Stephens last Friday night.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of Saturday evening’s game, Jim is well aware of the backlash they are expecting.
“They are County Champions as of right, they were undefeated all of last year and they had a very good start against Clara out in Gowran.
“I was at that match and there is always going to be a blip no matter how good you are as a team, you are always going to have a blip, so I suppose this will be a challenge for them going forward having had a setback to see how they react to it.
“I have no doubt that they will react in a very positive way and we would be very wary of that,” he said.
