Armagh selector Kieran Donaghy has cited Antrim as “a very dangerous obstacle” for the Orchard men in their Ulster SFC opener in less than two weeks’ time.

Kieran McGeeney’s side welcome the Glensmen to the Athletic Grounds on July 4th looking to inflict a first defeat of the season on them.

Speaking to, Donaghy expects the Saffrons to be coming with plenty of confidence on Sunday week.

“We have a huge chance to go out against a very good Antrim side and put in a performance,” said the four-time All-Ireland winner.

“When it comes to knockout championship football that's the way it has to be. Antrim will be coming with such confidence, they haven't lost a game this year – they've won four and they've won all types of tight games, they've won games that haven't been the prettiest but they figured out a way to win and winning is a habit.

“They are a very dangerous obstacle and we have to be playing at our best and delivering on the stuff that we're working on on the training field.”
