Leinster SHC: Antrim ‘got what they deserved’ in Wexford win – Darren Gleeson

The Saffrons boss had called for a reaction to their mauling by the Cats last weekend and he got it and then some.

Antrim produced the goods, overcoming the adversity of a Wexford penalty goal they disputed and then having a goal of their own chalked off for a square ball.

They refused to go away, however and got their rewards with a strong finish seeing them home.

“We got a goal that was disallowed, a harsh penalty against us, I feel. I was disappointed with those decisions, but I could be proven wrong when I see it on television, but in the heat of the moment, that’s how I feel,” Gleeson explained.

“Those lads go out and represent the group really well and it wasn’t a fair reflection on what we’re trying to do [the Kilkenny game], but that was down to us.

“The boys wanted to right that and they did that themselves. We facilitated in the week for them to have the little chats and work on what they needed to work on.

“We’ve come a long way when we are coming out of Nowlan Park disappointed,” he added.

“Corrigan Park has been great to us again against a fine Wexford team that had a cracking performance last week, but just that small bit more hunger was evident, and I’m thrilled for the players.”
