A rare chance to see Dublin in preperation for their Allianz League Division 1 Football Final
Ahead of this weekend’s Allianz League Division 1 Final, DUBSTV brings us behind the scenes of the preparations of Jim Gavin’s Senior Footballers as they get ready to face Galway for the second time in only a few weeks.
In Round 6 in Salthill, the Dubs were pinned back by the Tribesmen, the only other side unbeaten in Division, with the game ending in a draw 0-13 each.
Gavin admits that it’s not often you get a game like that so early in the season, and also admits that the players really enjoyed the challenge put to them by Galway. The defensive system used by their opponents was a difficult one to breakdown, but the Dubs finished strong to get the draw.
This weekend, the Dublin manager expects another tough battle from Galway, who have developed their counter attacking style over the last couple of seasons.
We’re sure to get a League Final to remember, and Dublin will be looking to get their grip back on the Division 1 title, which they lost narrowly to Kerry twelve months ago.
