Rory Gallagher quickly got Sunday’s disappointing showing against Monaghan out of the system when an experimental Donegal side defeated Galway on Monday night.
Donegal were utterly underwhelming at O’Donnell Park on Sunday afternoon and were caught cold by an ultra-defensive Monaghan side.
With teams adopting defensive systems it wasn’t a game for the purist and many of 6,000 strong attendance were left feeling short changed after a dour affair.
Monaghan prevailed and earned two precious league points and Donegal’s game versus Kerry now takes on added significance.
However, Gallagher took a Donegal side to Galway on Monday evening and will be delighted with the performance of several of his players.
Eoin McHugh, Darrach O’Connor, Ryan Malley, Colm McFadden, Martin McElhinney and Hugh McFadden all featured for Donegal.
The game was the complete opposite of Sunday’s Allianz National League clash as a rampant Donegal notched up 3-17.
Colm McFadden was particularly impressive and reminded Gallagher he still has plenty to offer at inter-county level.
It gives Gallagher plenty of food for thought ahead of their long sojourn to Kerry this weekend.
Some of the players that impressed in Monday’s clash will be hoping they can force their way into Gallagher’s plans on Sunday.Tags:
