Fermanagh's discipline during the league campaign was questioned on more than one occasion, but Rory Gallagher was delighted with the side in that respect last weekend.

Gallagher feels that their discipline played a huge part in their win over Armagh in the Ulster SFC clash at Brewster Park.

Armagh finished the game with 14 men after Niall Grimley was dismissed and there is no doubt this impacted on the game.

And Gallagher told the Fermanagh Herald that maintaining their own discipline was key to their success.

"That's (discipline) a huge learning curve this year. The games we have lost, that has cost us this year. Tyrone in the McKenna Cup, Sean in the league final. Westmeath, we lost a man. The boys wanted it so badly and it is a fine line, that controlled aggression.

"We felt there was huge scope for learning from the league final. It wasn't the be-all and end-all for us, we went out and we had a free hit at it. Armagh played really, really well, but look, we rode our luck."
