RORY GALLAGHER wasn’t too downbeat after Donegal’s four-point defeat to St Mary’s in the Dr McKenna Cup in Letterkenny.
Donegal had Paddy McGrath sent off in the 52nd minute, but it was squandered chances rather than the sending off that was Donegal’s downfall.
“The second goal was the killer, but I expected us to be four or five points up at that stage,” Gallagher told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We missed a lot of chances. We dominated a lot of possession, but struggled to break them down in the first half.
“We came out for the second half and missed a number of chances. It shouldn’t have been a case where we were only a point up when that goal went in.
“We’re not happy to lose and we’re not happy with level of performance but it’s early days yet and it’ll help mould them for the future.”
