Westmeath defender Paddy Holloway believes that they used the lessons learned from their defeat to Cavan in order to help gain a win against Fermanagh last weekend.

Conceding 1-03 in injury time, cost them two points against the Breffni men in FL2 round two, but Westmeath bounced back with a hard working win over Ryan McMenamin’s charges last Sunday.

The win moves Westmeath onto four points and puts them second in the table at the moment, but there is a lot of football to be played in the division yet.

Holloway admitted to the Westmeath Independent that the defeat to Cavan was hard to take, but stressed the importance of learning from every game.

“It was a very tough game. I think we really had to dig deep in the second half. I think Luke [Loughlin] getting the second yellow changed the course of the game, but we had our lessons learned from the Cavan game the previous week,” said Holloway.

“It’s nice to get a win and come out with a smile on our faces. It’s about working hard and trusting players around you. We dropped one back and we were working hard on it. We trained hard for it and we’ll be ready for the next day.”
