Donegal v Galway takes place at 2pm on Sunday in Letterkenny. We have a preview of the game, as well as team news and betting. If you can’t make the game we have live updates of the game.
Donegal remain unbeaten in Division 1 after recording a draw with Mayo in their opening game before beating Meath in Navan on Sunday 3-08 to 0-07. Michael Murphy impressed me in that game as did Odhran McFadden Ferry. Speaking after the win manager Declan Bonner said, “I thought the way we moved the ball for those goals was top class, and yes we should probably have had two more (Michael Murphy missed a first half penalty). But no time to rest on that, not with the challenge of Galway coming to Letterkenny next Sunday”. Patrick McBrearty could return to the side, while Michael Murphy, Ryan McHugh and Odhran McFadden will be key once again.
Galway come into the game on the back of a narrow loss to Kerry on Saturday night. The Westerners sticking with the Kingdom right up till injury time only to lose out by 1-15 to 2-11. Joyce will look to Shane Walsh who once again impressed, while there were terrific performances from Eamonn Brannigan who scored 0-03 against Kerry.
Galway (FL1 v Donegal): Connor Gleeson; Seán Kelly, Seán Mulkerrin, Johnny Heaney; Gary O’Donnell, John Daly, Cillian McDaid; Ronan Steede, Céin D’Arcy; Eamonn Brannigan, Damien Comer, Michael Daly; Rob Finnerty, Shane Walsh, Mikey Boyle
Donegal are 4/7 to win this game, while Galway are 7/4. Donegal are strong at home and I think they will win by 2 or 3 points here.
