McMullan promises better against Loughgiel
DUNLOY meet Loughgiel this weekend and they are hoping to improve on their result against the All-Ireland champions earlier this year.
The Cuchullains were the first team to play Loughgiel after they won the Tommy Moore cup. They lost by 2-14 to 0-13.
Dunloy boss Seamus McMullen said that the scoreline should be closer this time around.
“We stayed with them for 45 minutes, but their fitness came through in the end. We would expect to perform better this time, and have a performance with more character,” he said.
“We are in the second week of July and we want to get a few back-to-back performances. We would like to think that we would be fitter this time around. We would hope that if we are there or thereabouts at the end then we can challenge them.”
In their first four games of the league, Dunloy won just one match, against Ballycran. They bounced back to beat Ballycastle before losing narrowly to Cushendall, but since then they are unbeaten, recording a draw with Portaferry and a one-point win over St John’s.
