Roy Keane is backing Cork all the way to win their first All-Ireland final in 19 years against Kerry at Croke Park Sunday.

"I’m confident of victory. I’ll be watching it on Sunday and fingers crossed they’ll do it," says the Cork man.

"I don’t think any of my family will be going, they’re more into the hurling. But I’ll definitely be watching."

Cork fans will be hoping they have more luck than Keane's English side Ipswich Town which are still looking for their first league win of the season.

Ipswich, aka the Tractor Boys, drew 3-3 in a thrilling game against Doncaster Saturday.

Keane, pointing out the obvious, said;  "We’ve not defended well enough as a team, particularly when the ball goes into our area. We are getting the ball into good areas, but we’re just not getting on the end of it and scoring that vital goal."

But Keane is still confident that the Tractor Boys can plough their way into the top flight.

"I’m fairly confident come the end of the two-year contract I’ve signed, we’ll be in the Premiership. No one said it was going to be easy."
