Dublin fail to impress despite beating Donegal


Dublin two-goal hero Niall Scully denied that the All-Ireland champions were saving themselves for their crunch clash with Tyrone after a sluggish 2-15 0-16 victory over Donegal in the Super 8s at Croke Park.

Jim Gavin's side travel to Omagh to play Tyrone next Saturday needing to improve or risk ending their unbeaten run of 28 Championship wins. 

Wasteful Dubs had Scully to thank for avoiding a shock with crucial goals either side of half-time while Declan Bonner's side, missing the injured Paddy McBrearty, were equally culpable in attacking areas.

The last game Dublin lost at GAA Headquarters was the All-Ireland semi-final in 2014 and against a more clinical team could have found themselves in trouble.

Asked if Tyrone was on their minds, Scully told RTE Sport: "No, not at all. We have over the past two or three weeks been fully focused on Donegal and putting all our efforts into it. We are taking one game at a time.

"We know going forward next week against Tyrone that that performance will probably not be good enough."

In the Super 8s opener at Croke Park on Saturday, the O'Neill County thumped Roscommon 4-24 2-12

Donegal travel to Roscommon next Saturday in the second round of the Super 8s with both sides desperate to get some points on the board.
