Gavin a relieved man after Dublin win


Dublin manager Jim Gavin was happy his side "figured it out" against Monaghan in Saturday's NFL Division 1 clash at Croke Park.

Cormac Costello and substitute Bernard Brogan hit late points as Dublin secured a 1-14 to 0-16 win to maintain their 100% league record.

“I thought the boys showed good spirit to eke out a couple of scoring opportunities and come away with the two points,” Gavin said.

“It wouldn’t be good enough for later on in the season but for the last weekend in February, we’d be happy with the two points. Monaghan are a good side and built up a commanding lead but I thought our boys stood up and figured it out eventually.”

Malachy O’Rourke was disappointed his Monaghan side could not close out the match when leading by a point with four minutes to play at Croke Park.

“We’re disappointed. We came down to win,” the Farney manager said.

“After conceding the penalty we forced ourselves back into a position where we could have won the game.

“If we’d showed a bit more composure, we could have got at least the draw out of it.”
