Who was Armagh’s Man of the Match following their three-point defeat to Roscommon in round three of the league on Sunday afternoon?
20 players saw game time for Kieran McGeeney’s side as they lost out to the table toppers in Dr Hyde Park.
Guessed wrong for the Roscommon penalty but Rafferty pulled off a super save near the end of the game when Armagh were chasing a result.
Broke forward early on to win a free that was eased over the ball by Rory Grugan for Armagh’s first score.
Forker controlled the pace of a lot of Armagh attacks and rarely made a mistake when in possession.
Held Ben O’Carroll scoreless in the first half and done likewise when up against Ciaran Murtagh in the second period.
Broke forward to join the attack whenever presented with the opportunity and kept the ball well for Armagh.
Swung over a point in the second half but also gave away the penalty with a last-ditch tackle.
Jarly Og Burns
Assisted both of Jason Duffy’s first two points to give Armagh the lead early in the first half.
The Shane O’Neill’s midfielder earned his first start of the season and was replaced at half time.
One of those days that it just didn’t happen for Campbell, but the Clan na Gael man never gave up.
Came in to replace Callum Cumiskey and put in a lot of hard yards. Will be disappointed he didn’t get on the scoresheet early on.
Worked hard up and down the field and chipped in with two scores, both frees, one in each half.
Will rue a golden goal opportunity in the first half, but credit to Roscommon player Ciaran Lennon who made an outstanding block.
Finished as Armagh’s joint top scorer with 0-4 and also provided a helping hand around the middle of the field.
It was impossible to give Murnin a bad ball in Dr Hyde Park, whether at midfield or full forward. He was exceptional and has been in brilliant form of late.
Duffy was the in-form player of the first half and chipped in with 0-4. He may be disappointed he didn’t rattle the net during the opening period.
Won a good turnover at the start of the second half when Armagh were under pressure and had a good impact after coming in.
Cumiskey found it hard to get into the game after coming in for Tiernan Kelly for the last quarter.
Earned a great turnover in the second half which created a goal chance, but Rian O’Neill was hauled down by Keith Doyle.
Got his hands on a number of possessions when introduced as the Orchard County were chasing the game.
Came into the fray for the final few minutes of the game, replacing Jason Duffy.
