O'Donnell keeping calm


Securing their Allianz Football League Division 1 status remains the top priority for Roscommon after their emphatic defeat of Cork , joint-manager Fergal O'Donnell has said.

Roscommon thumped Cork 4-25 to 3-10 at Pairc Ui Rinn to make it four points from their opening three games in Division 1 but they still have work to do if they are to remain in the top division.

While O'Donnell believes Sunday's victory was a huge achievement for his team he insists they will not be getting carried away.

"It was a great win, we never expected it. A lot of people would have been focusing on the Down game but we felt that, the way the League has gone the last few years, teams take points off each other," O'Donnell is quoted as saying in the Irish Star.

"It was massive for us to get two points today. I suppose we got the breaks, Cork should have got another goal just before half-time. Peter Kelleher had a chance which hit off the post, that would have brought it to six and made things a lot tighter.

"We're delighted but the main thing still is to stay up and that'll be a big task. We still need two more points, it's going to be difficult but we're delighted."

Cork manager Peader Healy, meanwhile, was left stunned by his side's collapse to their Connacht opponents.

"I thought even this morning we were in good form to be honest with you. We had big problems all over the pitch," he stated.

"Let's be honest, they seemed to be on top. Once they got on top and had a bit of momentum, we couldn't seem to stay with them."
