Armagh are taking a week by week approach to the National League according to forwards coach Kieran Donaghy.
The Orchard County opened their account with an away day victory over Monaghan last Saturday evening.
This week, they face a Mayo side that drew with Galway in the first round and will offer a huge challenge to Armagh.
“I think it’s just the competitive nature of it is what we look for. It’s the type of division that you can’t look further past the next game, and that’s not a cliché, it’s a fact of life.
“We’ve Mayo in the Athletic Grounds next week with a new management team and a hungry group of players. So, every week you’re prepping for the next team and focused on that.
“Whatever way the thing crumbles at the end, whether you have a relegation battle, or your mid table and pushing for the Sam Maguire position in the championship, or whether it is getting to a league final.”
Week by week
Donaghy insists that due to the competitive nature of Division One, it’s impossible to look any further than the next game.
“But at this stage of the year it’s about getting through the games injury free. And obviously trying to get a few wins and results along the way to build the confidence of the players.
“I don’t think at this stage you can think any further than the next game. Every level of competition in Division One is serious, so you have to give them the respect they deserve.
“I thought Monaghan were really good at times. They’ll look at that goal and say that we would have won that game only for that.
“It’s a good result, it’s two points on the board, and back focused to trying to get ready for Mayo at the weekend.”
