Mattie McGleenan says it's his fault Cavan lost their Division One status last year.
After five rounds of games in this year's league, the Breffni County are currently sitting unbeaten at the top of the second tier and look to be on the cusp of an instant return to the top flight.
"I think they enjoyed the experience of Division One last year and they'd like another taste of it and we're trying to prove people wrong," their manager states in The Irish News.
"I'll take responsibility for us going down. It was my first time in and it was a huge learning curve for me. I'd like to think that I'm a fairly fast learner.
"The backroom team has been absolutely superb; everyone's working really hard. It's all about the team, it's all about the players. We're a tight-knit group and we're working really hard for each other."
