‘One day at a time sweet Jesus that’s all I am asking of you’

The line from the hit song could well be applied to Ratoath hurlers as they face Trim in todays Jubilee Cup decider in search of the first leg of a hurling and football double.

They lost three of their five group games and only made the knockout stages courtesy of a better scoring difference than Na Fianna but one day and one game at a time since then they have grown in confidence and while Trim will provide a formidable final barrier the East Meath team can prevail.

If they do it will see then reverse the result from when the sides clashed in a feisty encounter that saw three players sent off, earlier in the campaign.

And that defeat will have taught Ratoath exactly what they need to do to win, contain James Murray.

The scoreline that day was 4-13 to 0-18 with Murray scoring 3-5, he’ll be closely marked today.

If Murray can win it for Trim then so can Gavin McGowan for Ratoath as his display in the semi final win over Kiltale showed.

In what should be a tight tussle Ratoath if they can continue their momentum can edge it
