Goals key to Armagh’s win says Turbitt

Goals either side of the half time break were the key to a second win on the trot says Armagh attacker Conor Turbitt.

Cian McConville rattled the net before the break while Ciaran Mackin raised a green flag at the start of the second period.

In the end, 12-points was the difference between the sides as Armagh dismantled the challenge presented by Meath.

“We got the goals at the right times during the match,” said Turbitt, who top scored on the night with 0-5.

“Just before half time and soon into the second half. That sort of killed the game off. The goals probably came at good times and that saw us through.”

Armagh’s overall performance was much improved from their one-point win over Louth last weekend.

It took Kieran McGeeney’s men a while to warm up but once they did, they burst into life and never looked back.

“I think last week Louth set up a bit more defensively. Meath probably pressed us a bit harder,” added the Clann Eireann attacker.

“It took us a while to get used to what they were doing. I think once we got round it, we started to work them out and chip over a few scores. It was good to get the win.

“It can be tough obviously when teams are going defensive, it’s just the way it is. You are trying to work them out and find wee pockets of space.

“To be fair to them, they were well set up and we found it tricky. As I said, we chipped over a few good scores as a team and found the net at good times. It was good to see it through.

“It is just the small things we are trying to tidy up. I think the game was a bit more open for us tonight and we were able to find the pockets and clipped over a few scores.

“That’s what we are trying to do, just improve every week. We’ll move on to the next game against Kildare.”
