Tipperary are facing relegation from Division Three of the Allianz National Football League following their third defeat in a row away to Wexford.

Manager John Evans described it as his lowest day in football as he saw his side humbled by the home side in a fifteen point hammering, 2-20 to 1-8.

It was sweet revenge for Wexford who had lost to the visitors last season.

Tipp started brightly and a Peter Acheson goal was a tonic start but that was as good as it got for the Munster men who failed to match the home side in most aspects of play.

Every remaining game is now vital for Tipp if they are to avoid what would be a disastrous drop to Division Four, starting next Sunday when they are home to Cavan as part of a football/hurling double bill at Semple Stadium when the Tipp hurlers also take on Galway.
