Disappointing to be in the Qualifiers so soon as Derry were beatable yesterday and seemed to have totally gone in the final 20 minutes.
Down are certainly capable of a run in the Qualifiers,to make the quarter finals is a big ask but possible as the qualifiers seem to suit this Down team better.There is more scope for changing a few players game to game and tweaking systems.
The midfield is the area thats needs sorted.They won very little in the first half and it was only when the half forwards started picking up breaks in the second half that we got decent possession.
Darren O'Hagan had a good game yesterday,the defence created many turn overs which should have been the platform for victory.
If we could win a couple of matches it will build momentum.
