Cork’s momentum – can it continue?

A confident Cork football team can be a dangerous proposition.

The Rebels have now beaten two Division 1 teams (Mayo and Roscommon) in back-to-back matches for the first time in 14 years.

The momentum on Leeside is at an all-time high.

Cork last weekend against Roscommon showed great game management in the closing seconds to secure the winning point.

However, playing three championship games on the bounce against some of the best teams in Ireland can and will eventually take its toll.

Something which is not alien to manager John Cleary.

“One criticism maybe I have is the three weeks in-a-row,” the Cork boss said.

“The reward for winning your group is that you don’t have that. But I think it’s a bit too compressed at this stage of the season.

“And look, maybe next week we’ll be saying, wasn’t it great to have momentum for those lads that played three weeks in-a-row.

“But, as I said, the jury is out on whether the teams that were sitting at home last weekend have the advantage.

“Those games, I know even from our side of the fence, they take a fair bit out of you because you’re preparing and it’s a long day. The day of a championship match and the following day. You’re fairly wiped out.

“And then to realise it starts here again because six, seven days’ time you’re doing it all over again and you need to get up the reserves of energy, and for us all there, you got to go to work the following day and the players have got to go to work.”
