London manager Paul Coggins says that his team will head into their All-Ireland SFC qualifier with Fermanagh on Saturday week with confidence. The Exiles, who lost to Mayo after extra-time in their Connacht SFC quarter-final last month, were drawn against John O'Neill's men in yesterday's first round draw and Coggins both teams will fancy their chances of advancing to the next round. He told The Irish Examiner: "Fermanagh's reaction would be the same as our own. They beat us by six points in the league and I'd say they're looking at how well they played in the Derry game. "A lot more counties would be down in the dumps about their performances. But we're a Division Four team and they're a Division Four team. However, they also finished the league strongly. "We've been training hard since the Mayo game and there are expectations because we played so well but this will be a completely different game. There was a big build-up to the Mayo game and it was a huge day but I wouldn't expect 5,000 for the Fermanagh one." London and Fermanagh meet on Saturday week, June 25, at Ruislip, where throw-in is at 1.30pm.
