Midfielder Neil Gallagher says Donegal need to be “brilliant” to beat Dublin in today’s All-Ireland semi-final.

The All-Ireland champions have coasted past all challengers this year, with their lowest winning margin being 11 points against Laois.

The 2012 champions, on the other hand, beat Armagh by just one  point in the quarter-finals and were also pushed hard by Derry and Monaghan in the Ulster Championship.

Gallagher told RTÉ Sport: “We need a brilliant performance if we are going to beat them.

“They’ve been going well. They’re racking up big scores. Every game they’ve played they’ve massive scores.

“We’ve got on and we’ve got through Ulster, and then had a tight game against Armagh.

“We know ourselves what we’ve worked on to prepare for Dublin and it’s just a matter of doing that and hopefully it will be good enough.”
