Saturday was do or die says Accies coach

Phil Marshall sensed his players were in the mood

After steering their All Ireland bid back on track, Omagh Accies coach Phil Marshall is giving his players a well earned rest.
 
On Saturday the Accies defeated Ballina 17-7 and the weekend after next face Clonmel in a winner-takes-all decider to earn a play-off place against either All Ireland 2C opponents Boyne or Kanturk.
 
On the victory over Ballina, Marshall sensed his players were in the right frame of mind.
 
“The guys knew it was do or die on Saturday and I could sense they were up for it in the warm-up. They were sharp, they were vocal and when my team is vocal I know they are on it.”
 
This weekend Marshall is giving his players some much-needed time out.
 
“For the players this weekend is about clearing the head, enjoying Easter and spending some time with their families,” he continued.
 
“Next weekend is another opportunity to gauge where we are at as a team and a club.”
