Murphy staying positive


Michael Murphy insists Donegal are remaining positive ahead of the weekend's Allianz Football League Division 1 clash with Monaghan.

Donegal have lost to Kerry, Roscommon and Dublin in their last three games but they are still in with a shot at progressing to the semi-finals.

The defeats have left Donegal in a 'wee bit of a hole', but Murphy is confident they will learn from the mistakes they made in their recent defeats.

"There's huge learning in the league. The games are getting more and more competitive, week on week, game on game, year on year," Murphy is quoted as saying in The Irish Daily Star.

"I'd say it's vitally important to take the learning from the Roscommon game, take the learning from the Kerry game, take the learning from Dublin and really, really move on.

"We won the first three league games but we weren't that hugely euphoric. We didn't think we were on top of the world. Likewise, having lost a couple of games now, I don't think we're that down in doom and gloom and despair.

"There are positives and there is also a huge amount of stuff that we can work on this week. We have a game next weekend and an opportunity to put it right."
