Dubs need net gains

SO who will break Dublin's goal drought against Kilkenny? They haven't scored a goal in their last 385 minutes (six hours, 25 minutes) of championship action against the Black and Amber.
It extends back to June 1997 when Gerry Ennis scored a Dublin goal just before half-time in a Leinster semi-final which Kilkenny -- then managed by former GAA President Nickey Brennan -- won by seven points.
Since then, Dublin have lost five more championship games against Kilkenny without scoring a single goal.
Goal-scoring has been a problem for Dublin in recent times too, having landed just one (v Limerick) in their last four championship games.
