Kerry DL v Desmond League , Oscar Traynor Preview .

By Tommy Naughton

Kerry go into their final group game against the Desmond League knowing a win will see them advance to the second Round but any this less than this will see Cork Aul finish as runners up . The Desmond league travel to Kerry with only pride to play for after having two defeats already and maybe this could be a very dangerous time to play them as they will be under no pressure .

Kerry opened their campaign with a draw away against the group winners Limerick DL in October with a equaliser in the last minute . A match report from this game can be found HERE . Kerry’s second game was a home tie against the Cork Aul and again they had to come from behind in the final minutes to secure a point after an excellent home performance . Read the match report HERE .

Team Manager John o Regan and his Assistant Tadgh Healy are sure to have the team well prepared for the game ahead . The prize for Kerry will be a home second round tie against the Dublin Aul or the Defence Forces if they succeed in taking the runners up spot .
