Oisin McConville sees Sunday's All-Ireland SFC Round 2 qualifier against Donegal in Clones as an opportunity for Armagh to avenge their Ulster SFC quarter-final loss to the same opponents.

While acknowledging that the draw was one of the toughest the Orchard County could have got, the Crossmaglen man expects them to be brimming with confidence after taking out of All-Ireland champions Tyrone last Sunday.

"Whatever about beating Donegal, the big thing for Armagh is for them to go and do themselves justice," he said on BBC Radio Ulster's Sportsound Extra Time.

"They didn't do that the last day against Donegal. They didn't go after Donegal and hunt them down.

"I think there will be a renewed confidence and a realisation that there are ways that Armagh can go about winning this game and there are ways that just aren't going to work.

"I think there will be change of plan (from the last meeting). I (still) fancy Donegal I'm afraid.....I'm actually not afraid because my predictions haven't been great all year."
