Kildare 1-12 Dublin 0-12
Great days in Newbridge: Kildare recorded a famous win to boost their chances of remaining in Division One and leaving Dublin to finger the beads of yet another sorrowful mystery.
Kildare manager Glenn Ryan had the luxury of embracing the result but finding fault with aspects of the performance.
“In many ways it wasn’t about the performance but if we want to improve that’s what we have to be looking at,” he said.
He was probably referring to a few stumbles and clumsiness in possession that led to turnovers but there was nothing lacking in the commitment shown and the efforts that brought about a first win in the current football league campaign.
