Fruitless Orchard are eager to bounce back in style

Following their defeat in the All-Ireland qualifiers last year, Armagh boss Kieran McGeeney is keen to see his players turn the table on Galway when the sides clash at the Athletic Grounds tomorrow.

Defeat is unthinkable for the home side, particularly following that ignominious mauling by Cavan last weekend.

McGeeney's belief that his side can "turn things round" will be tested to the full against Kevin Walsh's men, who are behind pacesetters Tyrone with the scent of promotion very much in their nostrils.

Armagh may be missing some of their more seasoned brigade but McGeeney is sure to seek a more combative, resolute approach.

Aidan Forker, Micheal McKenna, Stefan Campbell, Charlie Vernon and Mark Shields will be key for the Orchard County.

If they perform, McGeeney may find himself on firmer ground for the last two games against Tyrone and Derry.
