Muff’s search for a first league win of the season continued at Ture on Saturday night with a 1-12 to 2-07 defeat to Convoy, but on the strength of this performance they are very close to turning a corner as their campaign passes the midway point.

Charlie Molloy’s side would have taken significant encouragement from their showing up the road at Carrick Field last week where they led in the second half before Moville pulled away and, when they dissect their eighth straight defeat of the season, they will look at it as a game they should have won.

Convoy arrived on Foyleside as red hot favourites and bidding to keep the heat on Letterkenny Gaels at the top of the table but it was Muff who dominated the first half and should have been well ahead at the end of a low scoring first half.

Wastefulness in front of the posts proved costly however as they could only muster a goal and three points for their strong possession in the final third and it was to prove crucial as Convoy began to dominate in midfield in the second half and began to pull away.

A second goal of the evening from Aidan Lynch, both of which were fine individual efforts, kept Muff in touch but it was a game they were always chasing in the second half hour as Convoy defended their lead well to take the points.
