Despite conceding three goals in their Allianz League Division 2 win over Louth, Donegal manager Jim McGuinness was still accentuating the positives as he strives to send his side back to the top flight.
The 2012 All-Ireland champions are level on points with Monaghan at the top of the table and can guarantee promotion with an away victory against Armagh next Sunday.
Ahead of that clash McGuinness is happy with the way his side are progressing and felt they did many good things in their dismissal of the Wee County.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport, he said: “I was very happy with the performance. We’ll have to look at a couple of goals we conceded in terms of where they originated and how they happened. That maybe took the gloss off things a wee bit.
"It was 0-13 to 0-01 at one stage and then we conceded the first goal. Obviously that gives a bit of impetus to the opposition and puts a pep in their step.
"Overall there are a lot of positives to take from the game. We played a lot of good football and we’re looking forward to the last game of the League which will be a tough game away to Armagh. But I have to say we’re happy with where we are at."
