Declan Bonner commended his team’s fighting spirit after they battled their way to a draw against Kerry on Sunday.
Donegal were heavily depleted for the game, and suffered a number of setbacks throughout the match.
However, they kept to their task and fought right to the end of the match.
“The one thing about the squad is these guys will fight to the end, there’s no doubt about that.
“There was some brilliant score taking, young Oisín Gallen came on and kicked two brilliant scores and I thought Michael (Murphy) was unbelievable in that second half and Ryan (McHugh) really took the fight.
“But to a man, they all really emptied it out there on the pitch and that’s all you can ask. We have to do it all again in two weeks.”
