Tipperary footballers face a crucial test this Sunday when Division 3 table toppers Wexford visit Semple Stadium (2,30).

With two games left in Division 3 of the National League, a home fixture against Wexford and an away match against Cavan, Tipperary need a big result this weekend in their bid to avoid relegation.

Tipperary are locked together with Waterford and Limerick on four points apiece ahead of bottom county Cavan, with all four counties battling for survival.

After a disappointing defeat to Waterford, Tipperary recorded a much-needed away victory against Offaly in Tullamore in their last outing, which boosted the prospects of avoiding the dreaded drop down to the bottom division.

The match against Wexford will be Tipperary’s last home fixture in the league.
