WATCH: John Kiely discusses the Walsh Park factor

Walsh Park is the venue for this Sunday’s clash between Waterford and Limerick with everything on the line for both sides.

Waterford have lost their opening two games while Limerick were beaten in their opener against Cork a fortnight ago.

However, Limerick manager John Kiely insists he hasn’t had much time to focus on the new venue as he tries to regroup his deflated side after the disappointing loss to Cork.

“I haven’t focused too much on Waterford’s set up over the past two weeks from the point of view that we have enough to worry about ourselves in terms of getting ourselves right for it.”

Waterford were defeated by Clare in their first round game at Walsh Park which was the first game at the venue in sixteen years and Kiely is aware that the Deise will be desperate to secure a win in their final home game of the year.

“Whilst they have had a difficult campaign thus far, I will be expecting a very very strong defence in their second home game.

There’s no complacency going into the game I can assure you.”

Listen to Kiely speak about Walsh Park in full below.
