McCartan says Down 'didn't show up'

James McCartan says Down were unable to match the intensity they produced in the narrow defeat by Donegal in Saturday's qualifier loss against Derry.

"I have no qualms about the result," added McCartan, who said it was not the time to talk about his future in the Down job after the defeat.

Derry boss Brian McIver lauded his team's "defensive display" as they avenged the Ulster Championship defeat by the Mourne men in May.
