And that was very pleasing for McGuinness.“From our own point of view it’s good to get up and running at home,” he said.“We had two good away matches where the performance levels were of similar quality to today. So that’s three good performances back-to-back for us now.“We played nice expansive football at times against Monaghan, with some really good support play. Overall the attitude was excellent and we now have six points on the board.” The Glenties man says expanding his squad and mixing youth with experience is helping the side reap rich rewards.“Every team in the country is on a mission in terms of goals and objectives for the season. We’re no different,” he said.“We’re a team that’s benefiting from having a lot of senior players who are still central to the team. We have them back in the fold and the added advantage of having new guys like Odhran MacNiallais and Darach O’Connor coming in is a boost.“Dermot Molloy’s form has been really good. Patrick (McBrearty) after his injuries is getting 20 minutes in matches and he’s making an impact every day he’s comes on.“Our overall objective is try and get the lads who had the major injuries last year up to the level required by the end of the League, while also giving youth an opportunity to play in the team. “Those two things have been going quite well in the three games and that’s good.”SO FAR, SO GOOD – McGUINNESS HAPPY WITH LEAGUE PROGRESS was last modified: March 2nd, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGAAJim McGuinnessMonaghanNational Leaguelast_img
