Dublin's attitude can open the door to victoryI'M looking forward to seeing the footballers in action this Sunday when they face Wexford in the Leinster semi-final, as things seem to be going nicely in the camp at the minute.

They looked impressive over Louth in the opening round, although Sunday's challenge will be far tougher as the Slaneysiders will have no fear of playing Dublin and will thrive on the challenge they offer.

They have a very good manager in Jason Ryan, and their style of play is tough to break down in that they are very solid and break at great pace in numbers, so there will be a huge onus on our forwards to maintain their discipline and track back at all times.

I would expect that Pat Gilroy has instilled this into his players, and I think Dublin's focus will be about ensuring the work-rate is up to the high standard we saw last year. If the attitude is right then there should be nothing to fear and I would imagine Dublin should have four/five points to spare at the final whistle.
