Derrygonnelly Harps attacker Conall Jones says “there is no real pressure” on the Fermanagh champions heading into Sunday’s Ulster club SFC final against Kilcoo.

The Harps will look to become the first side from the Erne County to lift the Ulster senior title and, speaking to BBC Sport NI, Jones knows they’ll be heading into the clash at Armagh's Athletic Grounds (3.45pm) as rank underdogs.

"No one expected us to get there so there is no real pressure," said the Fermamagh forward.

"Leading up to this week you are thinking about creating history, but it is important for us not to be thinking about that too much."

He added: "If you are going up against Kilcoo you are going to be underdogs and you just have to park that," added Jones, whose brother Ryan captains the side.

"We have had a good run up to now so it is important not to change too much. It is important we bring our game to the final instead of letting the final dictate our game.

"We have been favourites in Fermanagh for a number of years now so it doesn't really matter if you are favourites or underdogs. On the day it is about how you get on for 60 minutes of football."
