My Armagh boys know the score, insists McGeeney

At the outset of the Bank of Ireland Dr McKenna Cup, Armagh manager Kieran McGeeney indicated that he was keen to see his side rack up more impressive scores this year.

Yet even though the Orchard County amassed 2-12 against Derry last weekend, they still lost the match - but McGeeney is confident that his side can come good against Queen's at the Athletic Grounds tomorrow.

"There were a lot of good things in the performance against Derry for us but just the same we would like to have won," acknowledged McGeeney. "We missed a few chances in that game so we have to become even more accurate."

Ciaran McKeever (1-1) and Ben Crealey (0-3) were rather surprising contributors to the Armagh scoresheet in their new roles last Sunday and McGeeney will be seeking more from this duo tomorrow with Rory Grugan, Anto Duffy and Oisin MacIomhair also expected to make their mark.

Queen's looked particularly lively in the final quarter of their defeat to Down last week-end after they appeared to have slipped off the radar when they trailed by 1-9 to 0-4 and their fitness and resilience could again come into play tomorrow.

James McMahon, Marty Clarke, Shea Heffron and Martin O'Reilly lend an experienced edge to the students' line-up.

Goalkeeper Callum Mullan Young, full-back Anthony Doherty and left-full-back Fergus Quinn are key figures in the Queen's defence.
