Cavan v Waterford: Division Two Semi-Final Preview

Cavan take on Waterford in the division two semi-final in the Lidl National football league.

The match takes place in Banagher on Sunday at half past one.

Jackie Cahill previews the game:

Goals proved crucial when Waterford defeated Cavan in the group stages.

3-7 for the Déise saw them run out single-point winners against Cavan, who registered 0-15 in Round 4.

But Cavan won the 2018 Division 2 semi-final clash between the counties and they have Aishling Sheridan in blistering form.

She scored a hat-trick of goals against Kerry in a hugely-impressive victory at Fitzgerald Stadium last time out, while Aisling Maguire’s recent return to the squad is another fillip for boss James Daly.

Four wins from seven games saw Waterford through to the semi-finals and on their day, the Munster senior outfit are a formidable force.

Maria Delahunty is an exceptional kicker of placed balls, Michelle Ryan brings a wealth of experience at centre forward, while Aileen Wall possesses blistering pace in the inside line.
