IT PERHAPS showed a measure of Donegal’s standards that Hugh McFadden noted the ‘good, bad and the ugly’ in their win over Tyrone.
Donegal were full value for their 1-16 to 0-15 win over the Red Hands in Cavan to seal a place in the Ulster final.
Donegal won many plaudits after swatting Tyrone aside, but McFadden insists that there’s room for improvement.
“There was he good, bad and the ugly all in that performance,” McFadden told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“We put in a fantastic performance for 15 or 20 minutes in the first half, which which was probably the winning of the game. There were aspects of the second half which weren’t very good and we’ll look to have improvement for two weeks’ time.”
Although Tyrone overcame Donegal in each of the last three meetings between the counties and reached last year’s All-Ireland final, but Donegal fully believed in their chances.
McFadden said: “Inside those four walls, we believed that we could win. There was no hiding the recent disappointments we had against Tyrone. None of those sat well with us. We were confident that if we brought the performance levels that we could win.
“It’s probably one of our biggest days as a team, but we can get better.”
