Vernon demands Orchard belief

Armagh face relegation threat

Charlie Vernon has called on Armagh to believe in themselves as they attempt to avoid relegation from Division 2 of the National Football League.

Aside from a narrow victory over Fermanagh and a draw with Galway, the Orchard have lost all of their games so far in the league campaign.

Ahead of next weekend's clash away to leaders Tyrone and a subsequent encounter against mid-table Derry, Vernon issued a rallying cry to his teammates.

"Unless we believe we can stay up, we've absolutely no chance of doing it," the full-back told the Irish Daily Star.

"We were very close against Meath and very close against Laois, but those are sob stories at the end of the day. Tyrone aren't going to give those (league points) to us, Derry aren't going to give them to us, so we're going to have to try to earn them.

"With our backs to the wall like this, it's great to have these challenges so close to the Championship, something we didn't have last year."

Armagh are at the bottom of the Division 2 table, sitting on three points alongside both Laois and Meath.

Two sides will be relegated from the second tier to Division 3.
