Harps struggle for consistency
MONAGHAN Harps boss Mick McCormack is not happy with how his team have started their league campaign, but believes that a few wins would bring some much-needed confidence.
After a hammering from Ballybay last weekend, when his side shipped four goals, McCormack was in a dejected mood.
“We played reasonably well, but conceded four very bad goals,” said McCormack.
“We conceded the type of goals you just can’t legislate for, from individual mistakes.”
The weather conditions did not help, as the Harps had to play in blustery winds against a team who had yet to give up a single point this season.
“We have to cut out the mistakes,” said McCormack who was preparing for a clash with Carrickmacross due to be played last night. At the time of writing the result of that game was not known.
However, win or lose, McCormack predicts that every game of this season will be a challenge for his team.
“It is going to be a tough league this year. Every team is losing, apart from Ballybay and Carrickmacross,” McCormack said.
“Ballybay are very good this season, they have a very good forward line. They have a good chance of success, but it is very early in the season, and we are concentrating on ourselves.”
