O’Rourke looks to Championship following missed chances in Donegal

Armagh boss Paddy O’Rourke has looked at Jamie Clarke’s 67th minute goal chance as the turning point against his side’s defeat to Donegal. Clarke hit the post with both sides locked level on points. Armagh subsequently lost the game by 3 points.

O’Rourke said, “They missed chances, we missed chances, but the most glaring one was Jamie’s miss when he hit the post. Had he put the ball in the net, the game was over. He would normally score them but this time he didn’t. Maybe if someone had been following up it would have ended up in the net, but no-one was. It was the turning point because they went down the field and got the score.”

The former Down man also identified the importance of being ready to the Championship run in, “They got on top and went on to win the game. We were chasing the game for the last 10 minutes. We went out of the game for periods of the second half and never really got a grip on it again. We have a young panel of players and we have to get ready for the championship.”
