GAA: FORDE LANDS A LATE 1-2; Limerick.....2-10 Wexford.......1-09.

MATTY Forde almost drove highflying Limerick off the road yesterday.

With just 10 minutes left on the clock, a confident and arrogant Limerick were cruising at 2-10 to 0-6.

However, a late late scoring burst of 1-2, from Forde which, augmented by a point from substitute Darran Foran, had the home side in a tizzy.

Limerick boss Liam Kearns was left pulling his hair out as he raced up and down the touchline.

A four points winning margin did not reflect Limerick's overall superiority. They were very much the masters for so long with the long ball out of defence causing problems galore for a slack losers defence.

Were it not for two brave second half saves by keeper John Cooper from Mark Keane and Stephen Kelly, Wexford might as well have packed their bags.

SCORERS: Limerick: M. Gavin 0-5, K. Keating 1-1, M. Horan 1-0, S. Kelly 0-2, M. Keane, J. Murphy 0-1 each.

Wexford: M. Forde 1-5, G. O'Grady 0-2, J. Hudson, D. Foran 0-1 each.
