Murphy: Donegal are fit


Donegal captain Michael Murphy is confident the Tir Chonail men are ready to face Dublin in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final.

Having lost to Tyrone in the Ulster SFC final, Donegal have had to negotiate their way through the All-Ireland qualifier series and Saturday's match will be their second game in the space of eight days.

Despite their busy schedule, Murphy has played down fears over their fitness and insists they are prepared for whatever Dublin thrown at them.

“That’s what you train for, to get your body in a condition that it can play back-to-back games,” Murphy told The Irish News.

“That’s what the training has been geared to. I think we’re fit and okay for it. It’s a huge game, but it was the aim for us. Everyone knows what they bring to the table. They’re very difficult to analyse with the amount of powers they bring. They’re a well-oiled machine that has been there, done that over the years.

“Our performance against Tyrone wasn’t as bad as it was made out to be. We know where we are and where we need to get to now.”
