Dungloe bid to beat the drop
FOR the second time in a month, Gaoth Dobhair and Dungloe have been expected to play their Division One league clash less than two days before a Donegal Ulster Senior Championship clash.
The game was called off back in April, then was scheduled to be played on May 18, but that was postponed because of Donegal’s Championship clash with Cavan.
However, Dungloe boss Declan Bonner is resigned to the fact that the game cannot be put off any further.
In fact, the timing of this game may even help a struggling Dungloe side who picked up only their second win of the season last weekend, as they have found a bit of good form.
“The match has to be played because it is the second time that it has been postponed,” said Bonner.
“We beat Four Masters last weekend and that was our first win in the last five matches. We just haven’t been able to get over the line.
“We played very well against Four Masters. They were short a few players, but so were we. We went in with five or six lads out, including a few who are in Poland.”
Now that they have picked up that second win, and are two points ahead of the bottom two, Bonner will want his team to build up some momentum.
Friday’s game is a chance to do that because Gaoth Dobhair have suffered an even worse start to the season, recording just one win in eight games.
