Grimley defends tactics despite defeat

Armagh manager Paul Grimley says Cavan deserved their win in Sunday's Ulster SFC opener and defends his decision not to employ a sweeper at Breffni Park.

"My belief is that man to man, they have got to take responsibility for their own man. If that is not the case, then I will get someone who can," Grimley told BBC Sport.

The Orchard County boss said he was "confused" at referee Maurice Deegan's decision to call play back for an Armagh free after Jamie Clarke had fired the ball into the Cavan net early in the second half but added that it was "not a turning point in the game at all".
