However, McGlynn admits facing a Dublin side seeking to exact revenge for their All-Ireland semi-final loss in August in the first week of February will be a big challenge for Donegal.McGlynn told The Irish News, “Some people will look at it and think that they have a score to settle with us.“For us, it will be a matter of putting a performance together. It’s difficult to go away from home in the league, especially in the first week of February to go to Croke Park.“Your fitness levels have to be at an optimum to perform in Croke Park. It’s going to be a challenge, but it will be a challenge for both teams. “No one wants to go to Croke Park and put in a bad performance.Donegal haven’t won a game away from home in the Allianz National League competition since 2008.That record will have to end sometime, and new Donegal manager Rory Gallagher would n doubt love it to come this weekend against Dublin.  “CROKER IN THE FIRST WEEK OF FEBRUARY WILL BE A BIG CHALLENGE FOR US” – MCGLYNN was last modified: February 4th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ALLIANZ NATIONAL LEAGUECroke ParkdonegaldublinFrank McGlynnGAAnewsSportlast_img read more
