HIGH-FLYING Donegal have rocketed up the charts in Division One and as an explanation Hugh McFadden says they have worked hard on improving their attacking threat.
With an average of 15.6 points a game, Donegal’s league scorign rate is second only to Kerry, and Rory Gallagher’s side have a huge chance of making the final ahead of their remaining league clashes against Monaghan and Mayo over the coming weekends.
Eight Donegal men got on the scoresheet in their win over Tyrone last Saturday night. Hugh McFadden scored two points in their 0-12 to 0-6 victory and he says they have been encouraged to back themselves when a scoring opportunity presents itself.
“The thing we are working on now is trying to get more comfortable shooters around the field, and Rory has given a licence to boys to not be afraid to have a go.
“Ciaran Thompson showed it (versus Tyrone), Ryan McHugh got a score, Cian Mulligan came on and just shot away and got a great score.”
