McManus disappointed by Dublin defeat


Monaghan forward Conor McManus feels his side were unlucky to leave Croke Park with nothing following Saturday's NFL Division 1 defeat to Dublin.

The Clontibret star hit 12 points on his own but still ended on the losing side as Monaghan suffered a 1-14 to 0-16 defeat to the Division One champions.

The Farney County had taken the lead in the 66th minute but Jim Gavin's side levelled through Cormac Costello then secured the victory in injury-time through a late point from substitute Bernard Brogan.

"We're very disappointed," McManus told Setanta Sports.

"We worked well as a team, and the boys defended very well, so we probably should have got something out of the game.

"We could have snuck a draw there if things had gone our way, but it wasn't to be, and we go again next week."

Monaghan manager Malachy O’Rourke was delighted by the two-time All-Star's performance against the league leaders.

"We have come to expect that from Conor, and some of the points he got were top-drawer," O'Rourke told Setanta Sports.

"He had a lot of good support for much of the game, but 12 points is an exceptional return, and we just hope that we can keep him injury-free all year, and that he will have many more good days out."

Dublin boss Jim Gavin was also impressed with McManus' performance, but was pleased at how his marker Davy Byrne stuck to the task.

“Conor McManus will score in games – those top quality forwards always do - but I thought Davy Byrne had a very good game,” he said.
