Despite the good omens coming into the game, both managers remain coy as to their side's chances.

"Obviously, you will look at how the opposition set up and how they play," Offaly boss Declan Kelly told GAA.ie ahead of Sunday's final. "But we don’t really get too engrossed in the opposition really.

"You look at yourself and try to play to your strengths. If you concede possession, the good teams, they’re going to hurt you.

"Our mantra is try to get on the ball ourselves, try and impose our game on the opposition."

On the other side of the coin, Roscommon manager Liam Tully added: "We’re under no illusions it’s going to be a big job but we’re doing our best.

"Offaly are a fantastic group of players - the speed of them, the ball handling, their control (and) their attacking football.
