Last Sunday was a low time for Armagh football as they lost to Down for the first time in 25 years but the Irish News spoke to Forker who said that it is not an issue for Armagh and that the training competitiveness was not reflected against the Mourne men.
Forker hopes that they can get back on the track if they take on Fermanagh in the first round of the qualifiers on 25th June.
“We could have won, we should have won…. You’re saying that all the time with Armagh,” Forker remarked.
“We know what we have, we’re a sleeping giant in my opinion and we have serious quality but unfortunately it just hasn’t come together yet.
“I think there’s a belief there that it will and that it will come together at the right time. It’s okay going into the Qualifiers and beating a team you’re expected to beat, but we need to produce it in one of these nip-and-tuck games.
“If we can get that win we’ll get that confidence and we know what we can do.
“Then we’ll get that bit of belief that perhaps we’re lacking, but it doesn’t feel like that within the squad. Everybody knows what we’re capable of and the training is very competitive, we’ll just keep going.”
