Roscommon manager Anthony Cunningham bemoaned the "easy scores" his side coughed up throughout the league campaign that ultimately saw them relegated to Division 2 of the Allianz Football League.

Roscommon’s nine-point defeat to table-toppers Kerry proved to be the final nail in their coffin, and Cunningham pointed to the concession of two soft goals as the reason for such a lopsided loss.

"We’re disappointed really. In a lot of patches of the match we did very well, but they were soft goals. They were from balls that we had and simple turnovers. Kerry being Kerry will punish you, they’re a class team," Cunningham told RTÉ Sport’s Adrian Eames.

"You just can’t concede scores like that against Kerry."

The concession of easy scores has been a consistent problem for Roscommon this season, but Cunningham believes that his side can learn from their experiences.

"That’s the biggest learning point from all the matches we’ve played. We were on top and in a commanding position in a lot of the matches and then coughed up an easy score against Division 1 teams. We’ve learned a huge amount. The players have learnt a huge amount.

"For us, we just have to keep learning. We’re disappointed not to be in Division 1 next year because there’s a lot to be learnt from the top teams. The guys can learn and they’ve proven that in a lot of the matches."

For Cunningham, focus will now turn to the Rossies' Connacht SFC encounter with Leitrim, a side brimming with confidence.

"It’s a club month for April and guys will focus back with their clubs for the next couple of weeks. For us, we’re playing Leitrim - who are flying high after they got promoted - here in the Hyde Park on the 12th of May. That’s where our focus is this evening."
