By Denis J. CrokeDESPITE losing to Clare last Sunday manager Mike Quirke has named the same starting 15 to face Cork this evening in MW Hire O’Moore Park.

The manager was lost for words following last weekend, unable to put his finger on what had gone wrong. He said both he and the players were bitterly disappointed with the performance.

It appears as though Quirke is giving the payers the chance to redeem themselves.

The only change to the match day panel sees Brendan Carroll replacing Shane Bolger on the subs bench.

This is a must win game for both sides after Laois lost to Clare and Cork lost to Kildare. Whichever team loses tonight will most probably be locked in a relegation play-off.
