Antrim should target last eight says manager Frank Fitzsimons

Antrim manager Frank Fitzsimons says his team can "win a few more matches" in this year's football championship following their shock win over Laois.

"I know people out there will be laughing at me saying that but nobody gave us a chance today. We have the talent," said Fitzsimons, after his team fought back from nine points down to beat Laois 2-15 to 1-16 at O'Moore Park.

The Antrim boss also said that he had no option but to drop St Gall's trio CJ McGourty, Kieran McGourty and Conor Burke after they played a hurling match for their club on Friday night.

"For me to have any belief in the rest of the squad, there was no way I could have played lads who hurled last night."
