Malin will head into battle this afternoon knowing that a win will take them into their first ever Donegal Senior Championship final.
Killybegs stand between the Malin men and their date with destiny and both teams will go into the game believing that they can win the game.
The Inishowen men will head into the game as bookies favourites, having dismantled reigning champions St. Eunans in the quarter final, however Malin manager Terence Colhoun is adamant that it will be a 50-50 game.
“I won’t be looking at bookies prices or anything like that, we will be going into this game the same way as we go into any other and we know that if we don’t perform to our best, we will not be going through to the final.”
Killybegs league form has been abysmal all season but Colhoun was refusing to fall into the trap of paying any attention to this. “I believe that Killybegs have put all their efforts into the championship this season, having lost their first five or six league games they have more or less disregarded the league and have thrown everything at the Championship which will make them a dangerous animal on Sunday.”
Colhoun was also all to aware of the pedigree of the opposition today. “Killybegs have six Senior titles to their name and were in the final as recently as 2010, this is the first time that we have even reached a semi final so we are in no position to be taking them lightly.”
Quizzed on the approach his team will take, the manager said “we will approach this game the same way as we approached St.Eunan’s the last day, we will respect the opposition but we certainly won’t fear them and as long as we play to our potential then we will give ourselves a great chance of getting through.”
