Despite having a convincing win over Dublin in their opening game Baldwin remains focused on today’s match and picking up two more points.
“”We’ve put ourselves in a good position by winning over
The good news for Down is that Karen Gribben has returned to the panel and Baldwin believes that she could prove vital in the remaining games: “”We’ve brought back Karen Gribben from Clonduff, she’s a great asset to have could yet prove useful in the Championship series.””
Tyrone take on Kildare with manager Brenainn Brunton stating it is the game which could define their season: “”We have the potential to reach a semi-final and while it’s come unexpectedly we’ll be going out for the win. We’re under no illusions it will be a tough match, Kildare are probably the best team we’ve played this year. They’re a well balanced team with some fantastic players and a great midfield; I was really impressed with them.””
“”It is very much winner takes all, we’ve been approaching it as a semi-final. We know that it will be extremely tough but we’ve worked hard over the past few weeks in training and hopefully the result will go our way,”” MaGee said.
