Cavan v Fermanagh: Division 3 final preview

Steven and Enda preview the Division 3 final between Cavan and Fermanagh with Poacher expecting the Erne men to continue winning ways

Steven Poacher is expecting Fermanagh to continue their winning streak and make it six wins in succession in tomorrow’s Division 3 FL final against Cavan.

The Ulster pair met in the final game of the round-robin stages with Kieran Donnelly’s Erne side ensuring promotion, as well as topping the table, with a 1-14 to 2-9 victory in Breffni Park.

Since losing to Offaly in round two, Donnelly’s side have gone on a remarkable winning sequence with narrow successes over Down and Antrim – coming from behind on both occasions – before finishing out with three more victories.

That sets up the chance to get their hands on rare silverware – Fermanagh and Wicklow are the only two counties without a provincial title to their name – in Croke Park and Poacher, a former coach with Carlow and Roscommon, expects them to get the job done.

“Fermanagh will give Cavan their fill of it on Saturday night. Kieran Donnelly is a very astute manager,” he said during the latest Poacher & Varley Show on OurGame.ie

“I thought Down with Laverty and the bounce we would have gotten off Conor that Down would be very, very close to promotion. The only two games that they lost were to Fermanagh and Cavan.

“Fermanagh have been very impressive. They’ve gone about their business very quietly, they’ve a very astute management team. They also have a couple of forwards now that are a real handful.

“They were probably over-reliant years ago on Seán Quigley and relying on set pieces and dead balls. All of a sudden, they have the likes of Darragh McGurn and Ultan Kelm, who was in the team of the week last week.

“Josh Largo Ellis has come through their underage structures as well and they have some fine footballers. People normally associate Fermanagh with stubborness and being hard to break down.

“But Croke Park might actually suit some of those young forwards that they have. I think there could be a sting in the tail and Fermanagh could end up winning this final. I’m going with Fermanagh by the minimum.”
