Roscommon U20 manager Liam Tully is in no doubt that they will have to be at their best to see off the challenge of Sligo in Saturday’s Connacht football championship clash at Markievicz Park.

The game throws in at 2pm and Roscommon go into the match as strong favourites as this team reached the inaugural All-Ireland U17 final three years ago.

However, Tully is playing down the favourites tag and he stressed to the Roscommon Herald that they need to play exceptionally well to come away from Sligo with a result.

“We try to set our standards within the group. We have players that have played at a high standard but that goes out the window against Sligo on Saturday. We’re playing a very good and well developed Sligo team,” said Tully.

“Sligo’s results against Roscommon at underage level over the past few years speak for themselves. We can’t be thinking about how good we can be. We have to go out and deliver on Saturday.”
