Westmeath Looking To Move On From Fermanagh Defeat

Last year's Tailteann Cup winners got back in to the contest through second half goals but Fermanagh held on for a one point win.

Westmeath's narrow defeat to Fermanagh in round six of the Allianz National Football League needs to be accepted and moved on from according to their manager Dessie Dolan.

The Lake County trailed by worse than double scores at one stage of their contest in Ederney on Saturday.

Goals by Kevin Maguire and David Lynch got last year's Tailteann Cup winners back in to the contest, but Fermanagh held on for a one point win that ended Westmeath's hopes of promotion from division three.

Dolan says it's important to keep a balanced persepective whether results are good or bad, but the performance can improve:
