Longford manager Denis Connerton insists Armagh are the team to beat in Division 3 of the Allianz League.

The counties will meet in a top-of-the-table clash at the Athletic Grounds on Sunday, but Connerton is in no doubt who the favourites are.

"To me, Armagh are the best team in Division 3," he told the Irish News.

"Kieran McGeeney has worked very hard with this Armagh team. In fact, any team that he's been involved in are very difficult to beat. This Armagh team is very well organised and their strength and conditioning is hugely impressive.

"We know it's a very difficult venue for us to go to on Sunday, but these are the games players want to be involved in, playing against quality opposition in front of big crowds.

"Armagh are flying presently and we know from playing them last year - when they went 11 points in front - that we have to make sure that doesn't happen again."
