Relief For Mickey Harte's Derry After Win Over Westmeath

The win saw Derry secure a place in the preliminary quarter finals.

Mickey Harte is speaking about his satisfaction after beating Westmeath to keep Derry's chances of All Ireland success alive for another round.

The former All Ireland winner with Tyrone was trying to avoid a fourth consecutive championship defeat after damaging losses to Donegal, Armagh, and Galway.

Westmeath were looking for a first Championship win of their season after disappointing against Wicklow in Leinster, and following that up with defeats against Armagh and Galway.

Derry ran out four point winners after a late goal secured their win and passage to the All Ireland preliminary quarter finals at the expense of Dessie Dolan's side.

Harte says he's relieved to get the result:
