Donoghue dismisses favourites claim


Galway manager Micheál Donoghue has downplayed claims his side are favourites to win the All-Ireland title, following their 0-33 to 1-11 win over Offaly in the SHC Leinster semi-final.

The League champions are tipped to win the All-Ireland title after defeats for Tipperary and Kilkenny.

"From our perspective all the expectations are from the outside," Donoghue told RTÉ Sport.

"In terms of ourselves and our preparations we just take it one game at a time.

"All the talk [of favouritism] that’s outside really has no bearing on what we’re doing or any consequence on what we’re at.

"Obviously, I haven’t looked past today so from tomorrow and the day after we start looking at [Wexford].

"In fairness the way Offaly set up in the first half, having two sweepers closed down a lot of the space.

"We worked really hard and adjusted the game to get the scores from outside. We got 16 in the first half and 17 in the second so obviously we’re happy."
